Freeman At the Point Of Use

Ed Miliband reassured a concerned member of the public in Huddersfield this morning that he doesn’t use private healthcare. Indeed, apparently he doesn’t know anyone who does:

“Not me and not anyone I know.”

Unfortunately not everyone got the memo. Here is Labour’s star new endorser Martin Freeman speaking to the Sunday Times in 2012:

“I live in a big house and I clearly have more money than anybody in the history of my family and that’s afforded me more choice. Do I use the private sector? Yes. I do because I can and I realise that the difference between the people who do and don’t is the wherewithal to do it. Do I support the NHS? Of course I f****** do. I still use it, but would I use private healthcare? Yes. I’ve got a map on my wall of Victorian London that cost 6½ grand, so why, if someone from my family needed something that was life or death, would I not spend my money on that?”

Urine Trouble! Another P*ssed Off Voter

Nathan Crossman is a very cross man indeed. In the latest in a steady stream of campaign leaks, Mr Crossman, from Milton Keynes, has accused a Labour activist canvassing for candidate Andrew Pakes of relieving himself in his front garden:

Labour’s 4 million conversations on the doorstep are going well then…

Andy Slaughter is Having a Mayor

Yesterday Shadow Justice Minister Andy Slaughter’s cack-handed campaign for re-election suffered the embarrassment of distributing illegal leaflets in Hammersmith. Today the Labour MP faces more questions after he was photographed canvassing alongside the Mayor of the London Borough of Hammersmith & Fulham. Mercy Umeh was foolishly snapped by neighbouring Labour candidate in Chelsea Alexandra Sanderson, clutching leaflets backing Slaughter alongside Labour party activists. The rules are very clear: there is a strict requirement for the Mayor to be non-party political. It’s not the first time she’s been caught helping out Labour either. Will the powers that be show Mercy?

Labour’s Martin “Fairness” Freeman Sends Son to Private School

“I don’t know about you, but my values are about community”, says Martin Freeman in Labour’s election broadcast. “The bottom line is what values are we choosing, because in the end this choice we make really does matter,” adds the multimillionaire. Freeman declares that Labour “start from the right place – community, compassion, fairness – I think all the best things about this country”.

12669

That “fairness” in the “community” does not stretch to his own family though. The “values” that Freeman chooses encompass sending his young son to the elite Lochinver House School in Potters Bar for the compassionate sum of £12,669 per year. Onwards, to socialism comrades…

Labour Give ‘Hated’ Atos Special Access to Plans For Government

“Atos are a disgrace” said Liam Byrne in 2013 in a row about the French firm used by the DWP to assess who should get disability benefits.

Baldamort added that the government should “sack them and sack them now.”

Labour keep it quiet that they originally hired the frog firm in 2003, though eventually Atos walked away from their DWP contract after an intense negative campaign against them.

So imagine Guido’s surprise to hear that Labour grandee Alan Johnson has been despatched to brief Atos’ “public sector leadership team” about the plans of any future Labour government: special treatment that few other companies receive.

A disgrace! 

Tax Dodge Shame of Labour Election Star

Labour have wheeled out Tim from The Office, aka Martin Freeman, as their latest celebrity endorsement. Freeman, who is worth £10 million, told the Guardian in 2005 that he supported “Socialist Labour” but would not be voting for Labour under Blair again. Guess Miliband meets that criteria.

Back in 2013 it was widely reported that Freeman allowed his long-term partner and fellow luvvie Amanda Abbington to go bankrupt after she was whacked with a £120,000 tax bill. At the time the Mirror described the arrangement under the headline “Morally Bankrupt” as:

“an absolute disgrace… Amanda has been with Martin for 10 years and they have two kids – even if she really is skint why on earth can’t he chip in and help out with the bill?.. because she and her multi-millionaire partner can afford a fancy accountant, she doesn’t have to either, because he’s found her a way out of it”

Did Labour know about their star celeb’s past before they lined up his endorsement today?

Labour’s Shadow Justice Minister Struggles With the Law

It seems Labour’s slippery Andy Slaughter is struggling with even the most basic of instructions:

1.1 During the period when Parliament is dissolved before a General Election there are no Members of Parliament. Consequently you may not use that title during this period.

Here is what he is distributing today in Hammersmith:

Awkward for any MP, let alone a Shadow Justice Minister…

Siemens Slam Miliband for Labour FT Advert… Kellogg’s Also Frosty

A spokesman for Siemens UK is not a happy bunny about Labour’s full page advert in the FT this morning, which quoted their CEO Juergen Maier:

“…we were not told it would be used in an advert.

We were not given any warning.

We are apolitical, we don’t endorse political parties, we wouldn’t have agreed to be in an advert for the Labour Party.

The feeling is that they have overstepped the line.”

Guido hears Kellogg’s are pretty frosty about it all too…
