Chuka Abandons Ed’s “Zero-Zero Thing” After 12 Hours

Well, that didn’t take long. Grilled by Laura K on last night’s Newsnight, Chuka Umunna distanced himself from Ed Miliband’s new “zero-zero” slogan unveiled just 12 hours earlier, admitting he “couldn’t give you an exact number” of how many people paid no tax. Chuka knows the line is nonsense: nobody rich and earning in this country can lawfully pay zero tax… 

An exasperated Chuka eventually gave up and tried to change the subject, accusing Laura of “focussing on this zero-zero thing” and claiming Ed’s speech was actually about something else, despite it being the top line. A ringing endorsement of his leader’s latest big idea…

Ed Miliband Polling Lower Than Gordon Brown

sun-yougov

YouGov have done some drilling down into the public’s expectations and perceptions for The Sunthe numbers are terrible for Ed Miliband. With six months to election day a mere 19% think he is up to the job of being Prime Minister. This compares with 28% saying that of Gordon Brown six months before the last election, before the former Prime Mentalist went on to deliver Labour’s worst poll result in generations. The Tory press have never liked Ed, what will dismay Team Miliband is that his few media allies have lost faith. The Guardian is persistently sceptical of Ed’s merits, Owen Jones is scathing, the only national newspaper to back Ed for leader – the Sunday People – is despairing, the once fervent New Statesman now damns him.

So many Labour MPs openly admit that Ed is just not up to it that CCHQ has gleefully set up a dedicated website to highlight Labour MPs’ complaints. At PMQs Ed’s weakness is broadcast weekly to the nation. So what does Ed do? He has had a mini-reshuffle of his campaign team and brings in his friends…

Ed Miliband’s Ratings Still Tanking

Wednesday, October 8, 2014

Exclusive:
Douglas Alexander Orders Gagging of Internal Miliband Critics

Labour’s weekly conference call between election coordinator Douglas Alexander and the party’s regional organisers has been blighted with negative feedback about Ed Miliband for months. The local party hands report back on issues coming up on the doorstep during canvassing, and Alexander feeds that back to the top. Ed has apparently been the constant complaint, and the regional staff did not mince their words…

Except, well placed Labour sources reveal, someone has put a stop to all that. Guido hears that an official from Labour HQ – at the express behest of Douglas Alexander – rang the regional officers and told them to stop bringing up the criticism of the leader in the calls. Is an ostrich strategy better than no strategy at all?

Miliband Now Backing Call for Shaun Wright to Quit

shaun-wright-ed-miliband

Having campaigned for him to become a Police and Crime Commissioner in 2012 – even after negative reports about Children’s Services in Rotherham for which Shaun Wright was responsible – Labour HQ says Ed Miliband is backing calls for Wright to resign. The warning signs were there before he stood to be PCC; Ofsted giving the council the lowest rating possible, the Whitehall warnings to improve, the Times news reports rejected by Shaun Wright . Pictured here on the campaign, it is now handbags…

Yet again this shows why we need a voter’s power of recall for all elected positions. Back it here.

“I think Mail online comments are a telling indication of public opinion.”



Left on Left says:

The lefties are attacking because the panellist is a millionaire and lives in a London home worth upwards of two million. Someone had best tell them he’s called Ed Miliband.
