“An absolute shower,” (pron. “shar “) Cameron called them, the Labour leadership.
Perhaps he thought any more detailed attention would be to kick Miliband when he was down.
You shouldn’t kick your opponent when he is down. When your opponent is down you should gently bind him, place a careful foot on his croaking throat and dismember him. Harvest his organs. Mummify him and keep him in your cellar. Your friendly smile should never lose its freshness while you work.
“An absolute shar” hasn’t had the effect Cameron was counting on since 1956.
There has never been a more ridiculous duo leading a major party than Ed Balls and Miliband. Their polling is pitiful. Their strategy woeful. They couldn’t be more insulated from their voters than if they were wearing gimp suits, boxing gloves and a This Is What A Feminist Looks Like T-shirt.
They are following in the tradition of Michael Foot’s Labour, “there will be no compromise with the electorate.”
That is no reason for assuming they won’t win the election.
