Quote of the Day

Ed Miliband tells fellow Labour NEC member Ken Livingstone not to worry…

“Ed Miliband phoned me yesterday evening, and he briefed me on what he’s doing – he has not the slightest intention of breaking the trade union link. I had a text from his office saying that the news Ed will end the union link is total nonsense and emphatically not his view or our line.”

 

Prime Minister Miliband: Tough on Sardines

Ed Miliband is giving a speech today explaining how Labour can be tough on spending. He praised by way of example Atlee’s 1945 Labour government’s attitude to spending, “This is a government that banned the import of sardines because they were worried about the balance of payments. It shows a government can be remembered in difficult times for doing great things.”

SARDINES-ED

WATCH: Ed Miliband’s Plebgate Shocker

Will Ed be apologising in PMQs? This is one judge-led public inquiry he won’t be calling for…

UPDATE: Yvette Cooper has now called for an inquiry.

Quote of the Day

Dan Hodges opines

“Ed Miliband’s decision to fight the Tories on welfare is the biggest tactical blunder since General Custer said “I hear the Little Big Horn’s looking good this time of year”.”

Maggie Miliband

If you’re at your wits’ end come eight o’clock this evening then why not tune into Radio 4 to hear Ed Miliband in conversation with the Indy’s Steve Richards. Apparently not joking in his attempt to relaunch himself as a conviction politician, Ed tells Richards that he’s just like Maggie:

“She was a conviction politician and conviction really matters. In the 1970s, it was a similar moment, in the sense that an old order was crumbling and it wasn’t 100 per cent clear what was going to replace it. The challenge of the future is who can rise to the scale of challenge that the country faces and who can create a project for how this country’s going to be run that is genuinely going to make our economy work, not just for a few people but much more widely.”

A frightening thought…

Millionaire Miliband Questions Mount
Awkward Ed’s House Worth £2.3 Million

Watch wee Dougie squirm. Four times Andrew Neil asks him whether awkward Ed is a millionaire, four times the shadow foreign secretary refuses to answer. Why could that be?

Perhaps it’s something to do with the fact that the north London townhouse house Ed and Justine bought for £1.6 million three years ago is now worth a cool £2.3 million. What’s more, Ed’s wife switched their £400,000 mortgage from Clydesdale bank to Barclays in September. That whole calling for Bob Diamond’s head thing must have slipped his mind.

The questions aren’t going away. Guido will keep asking until Millionaire Miliband tells us how much he’s worth…

Who Wants to Be a Mili-onaire?

Awkward Ed’s inability to answer the million pound question yesterday hasn’t gone unnoticed.

The Telegraph reports that:

“Ed Miliband found it easy enough to criticise David Cameron’s “millionaire” status, but when questioned about his own personal wealth, the Labour leader struggled to find an answer.”

While the Mail piles in:

“The morning after his widely-praised conference speech, Mr Miliband was forced to defend claims the Prime Minister would personally benefit from a ‘tax cut for millionaires’ but refused to discuss his own levels of personal wealth.”

As seen here yesterday. You’re either in front of Guido…

Ed Splits One Nation Into Two

Not quite a comprehensive failure, but Ed’s ‘I’m just like you’ re-branding exercise has failed to convince voters of his one nation credentials. A straw poll by the Daily Politics shows that, even after his speech attacking “posh boy” Dave, […]

Ed Will Give You Déjà Vu
