Team Ed’s Shoot the Messenger Strategy

Dissent will not be tolerated. Ever since Ed’s deliberate war with the Mail over a mere headline, any story that displeases the Labour Party is billed a smear or an attack on Miliband without substance. It’s a deliberate strategy to try to hamstring the coming media onslaught in the run up to the next election. By billing Ed as some self-appointed moral media guardian who is only being attacked because of his stance of standing up to the press, they hope to blunt the multitude of legitimate blows. In reality, it’s just another attempt by a worried party that has a penchant for strong-arming the media. Labour should save the word “smear” for a morning when one of their donors and advisers hasn’t just been nicked.

UPDATE: 

UPDATE II: Worth noting a Miliband flunky retweeted the tweet on his behalf, so Ed is fully behind the shoot the messenger strategy.

When Ed Wanted “Responsibility and Integrity” in Banking

You would need a heart of stone not to laugh at the irony of Miliband launching his “Real Change” campaign to clean up banking straight from the Co-op crack den last summer. Standing proudly in the headquarters of Labour’s ethical bank, Miliband set out his vision to stop all those other big, nasty banks from behaving badly:

“I think that the thing the British people want most of all is banks which reflect their values – responsibility, integrity, reward linked to effort… You [the Co-op] have always understood that ethics of responsibility, co-operation and stewardship must be at the heart of what we do.”

Fast forward a year and a half and Labour stands accused of covering up a raft of gay porn allegations against crack-smoking Rev Flowers back when he was a councillor. And not a Miliband call for an inquiry in sight. How’s that whole responsibility and integrity thing going, eh Ed?

So Here’s What Happens Down Ed’s Local…

After Balls’ revenge attack on Monday revealed that the Labour leader doesn’t like the pub, Miliband’s spinner’s told the Sun“Ed does go to the pub and regularly to Askern Miners Welfare Club in his constituency. He’s a moderate drinker.” That would be the Askern Miners Welfare Club that doubles as a burlesque venue for cross-dressing corset-clad middle-aged men, hosting regular nights for Ed’s transvestite constituents:

Red Ed Wine

Co-conspirators searched far and wide for a photo of Miliband drinking in a pub, and on the evidence above it seems pint-less Ed isn’t too keen on the stuff. That is unless the pub in question stocks Lanson champagne. These pics were taken at the Old Star pub in St James’ Park, where Ed spoke last month to a fitting backdrop:

Bottoms up!

Odd Ed’s Pub Snub

Does Ed Miliband hate Britain the pub? Ever so helpful Ed Balls twisted the knife on ITV’s Agenda last night, instantly re-opening the Odd Ed attacks:

 “I’ve known Ed 20 years and I can’t think that I’ve ever been… Different people like different places, and I was last in the pub yesterday… I don’t know if he likes the pub or not.” 

Who doesn’t like the pub?

Would Ed like the pub if it showed baseball?

Well there goes the “who would you most like to have a pint with” vote…

Britain can chew better than this.

Bill and Ed’s Excellent Adventure

Move over Red Sox, Ed has a new red American hero:

Guido hears that this is not the first contact the two camps have had, with the NYC Mayor elect reaching out on energy policy and various other back channel chat.

Poor Hollande. Whatever happened to that guy…

Labour Owe Troubled Co-Operative Bank £3,391,000

The Co-Op bank’s £1.5 billion black hole will see 50 branches closed after the ‘ethical’ bank went cap in hand to hedge funds rescuers.

In 1999 the Labour Party borrowed £3,580,000 from the bank and only £189,000 has been repaid.

Miliband and Balls owe the troubled lenders £3,391,000. How many jobs could they save if they paid it back?

What is Keeping Ed Up All Night?

It’s not energy prices or poll ratings, that’s for sure. If Ed Miliband looks chipper this morning it is because his team won 6 – 1 last night. Red Ed was tweeting away at 3:30am as the Boston Red Sox won baseball’s “world” series.

Guido normally regrets his own tweets in the early hours…

A confused Nick Griffin says Nigel Farage is a shill for the City, forgetting that City banks want to stay in the EU:

“Farage is a snake oil salesman, but a very good one. His supposed anti-immigration stance is all smoke and mirrors, as is his carefully cultivated image as a ‘man of the people’. The truth is that UKIP is a pro-immigration party that exists to lobby for the interests of the City of London.”



Nick Clegg says:

Do you want lies with that?
