Harman Blurs Lines After Miliband ‘First Crack’ Comments

In the Sun today Guido has dug up an old interview of Ed Miliband saying on camera that the “constitutional position is clear” and “very simple”: in the event of a hung parliament “the Prime Minister gets to have the first crack”:

Well Harman was jumped with the comments on Sky News this morning:

Note how Labour’s position has shifted, with Harman calling the constitution ‘suggestions’. A total fudge. 

 

The Gospel According to Miliband

And lo, the Lord thy God spoke unto Miliband the Younger, and said: thou must control immigration.

Today’s Observer is not a spoof. It seems Ed has been hanging out with Russell Brand a little too long. Labour really have “commissioned a giant stone inscription bearing Labour’s six election pledges that is set to be installed in the Downing Street Rose Garden if he becomes prime minister.”

Apparently:

“The 8ft 6in-high limestone structure is intended to underline his commitment to keep his promises by having them literally “carved in stone” and visible from the offices inside No 10.”

They might as well write it on the barn wall…

At Last! Axelrod Arrives

And don’t they look happy to see him?

Yeah, really buzzing.

Winners grin, losers spin. Pretty grim faces all round…

Tutting Diane Abbott: ‘Tories Harp On About Mid-Staffs’

In an ITV London health debate last night former Shadow Health Minister Diane Abbott tutted when the Mid-Staffs scandal was mentioned:

When called out by the presenter, she justified her response by claiming that the Tories “always harp on about Mid-Staffs”. Apparently mentioning 1,200 deaths through neglect on Labour’s watch is not allowed, despite their claims to be the party of the NHS…

Two-Faced Chuka’s Sneaky Leaflet Con

What a lot of endorsements that nice Chuka Umunna has on his campaign literature from the good people of Streatham:

There are glowing references from Edris Thompson, a “retired healthcare worker“, who tells her fellow constituents “he cares a lot about people in our area”.

“New father” Richard McLean says “Chuka has been a hardworking local MP”.

He also has the votes of Pauline Milligan, “the director of the Streatham Food Festival”, “teacher” Helen Hutchinson and transport campaigner Dave Malley.

What none of the leaflets mention is that all of these people are members of Chuka’s local CLP.

See what they did there.

Where is the Outrage for These Dodgy Councillors?

Since the beginning of the year 291 LibDem, Labour or Tory councillors/candidates have hit the headlines for all the wrong reasons, yet received nowhere near the same level of outrage dished out over Ukippers misdemeanours.

Research by ‘Nope No Hope’ reveals 21 paedos, 2 rapists, 1 terrorist, 13 racists, 6 sexists or homophobes, 1 drug fiend, 8 expenses cheats, 4 benefit fraudsters, and 28 thieves:

Had any of these been UKIP, they would have led the news bulletins for days. Just sayin’…

Ed Balls Responds to GDP Figures

Biased BBC Election Website At It Again

Here’s the BBC election website at the opening of play this morning. It’s a Labour wet dream:

Labour’s lines and policies feature prominently and are completely unquestioned.

The only mention of the Tories links back to an ancient story about a Cameron speech given on 14 April.

As regular readers will be aware, we’ve been here before.

Was that really the only angle they could find?

Labour Housing Shadow Promised No Rent Controls Just Last Month

Poor Emma Reynolds has been well and truly stitched up by the Labour leadership. Just four weeks ago the Shadow Housing Minister promised that Labour ‘don’t want to introduce rent controls, so please don’t believe everything you read in the […]

Miliband in 2011: Leave Libya to the Libyans

“I think he has demeaned himself and demeaned his office” said Ed Miliband last week about Michael Fallon. Apparently “national security is too important to play politics with”. Fast forward a few days and Miliband is accusing Cameron of […]

REVEALED: Tom Baldwin Wrote Toxic Migrant Briefing

First he told a senior Lobby journalist: “I hate you. Even if I was dying, I wouldn’t want your bone marrow”.

Then he was responsible for Labour’s “weaponise the NHS” row.

And then Miliband’s Millie Dowler moment“.[…]

NUS Conference Censor UKIP, Spin “All Parties Invited”

It’s NUS conference time and the parties have apparently been invited to send a video message to the hard left students. NUS President Toni Pearce could not be clearer:

Quote of the Day

Charles Clarke says Cameron is the most successful PM for over a century…

“Under Margaret Thatcher the Conservatives gained 99 seats. They lost 211 under John Major, gained one under William Hague, quickly and wisely got rid of Ian Duncan-Smith, gained 32 under Michael Howard and have so far gained 133 under David Cameron who, to the great surprise of many (including senior Conservatives), has turned out to be the most electorally successful Tory leader since 1900.”
