Miliband’s Red-Facebook

Smarting from the stinging attack by the boss of Boots, Ed Miliband has rehashed his vague promise to clampdown on big corporations not paying UK tax.

He made this pledge while taking part in Sky New’s ‘Stand Up and Be Counted’ leaders’ event hosted at Facebook HQ.

The same Facebook who have paid no UK corporation tax for the last two years.

Really sticking it to power there. 

Kinnock Calls For Unity By Attacking Blairites

From this morning’s Times:

“The problem is never really the assaults from opponents. Certainly, it’s not a problem by comparison with sniping from behind. That’s a distraction.” He said the Blairites attacking Mr Miliband wanted to go back to the “day before yesterday”

Ignoring the 16 loony left MPs who wanted Labour to turn into Syriza on Monday, Prezza has intervened in the growing Labour row with his customary tact and delicate handling of internal party matters:

Mr Milburn criticised his party’s plans for the NHS and accused Ed Miliband of sticking to his “comfort zone”.

Mr Milburn also joined forces with another former Blairite minister, John Hutton, to attack Ed Miliband and Ed Balls for failing to defend New Labour’s economic policies.

Their comments sparked a furious backlash, with ex Deputy PM Lord Prescott accusing them of being “Tory collaborators.”

It’s pretty telling that the only people leaping to Ed’s defence today are Kinnock and Prescott.

Ed’s former PPS Chuka Umunna is out there – but he’s done a personal profile in Red magazine – which is a little wide of his Shadow BIS brief!

Where are the Shadow Cabinet?

Where are Ed’s praetorian guard?

Where are the 2010 intake, keen to support the leadership?

 

Tories Deny Photoshopping Miliband to Make Him Look Fat

Tory sources deny any manipulation of Ed’s face to make him look fatter on their new poster.

We report, you decide…

The Tory chairman tells Iain Dale:

“This is clearly a mocked up poster and so clearly it’s a bit of Photoshop work.”

Miliband’s Office Have Had 10 Days to Beg for Merkel Meet

The visit was first reported in the British media on 27 December – in the evil Murdoch press.

Have Team Miliband really not managed to ask for a meeting through the German Embassy since then?

Perhaps Ed wasn’t making it up when he said he didn’t read the papers…

At Last! Miliband Finds International Allies for Tax CrackdownISIS Sign Up to Labour’s 50p Rate Policy

50p

François Hollande, Ed Miliband and now Abu-Bakr al-Baghdadi. The FT reports that ISIS are implementing Red Ed’s policy of a 50p top rate of tax across the one holy caliphate:

“Sajad Jiyad, an independent researcher in Iraq, says that Isis struggles to balance its books, but services continue to function because of the money Baghdad still pays to former civil servants in Mosul. Isis taxes those employees at up to 50 per cent of their salaries.”

It’s a cost of jihad crisis! The caliphate can do better than this. One nation….

Miliband’s Intro From Granny Rape JokerBiz Backer Says ‘Trafficking Underage Hookers’ Key to Success

Labour hope that social media is going to win them the election, so you might have thought they would have a look at the online presence of those chosen to introduce Ed Miliband at his speech in Manchester this morning.

Amman Ahmed took to the stage talk about the economy and business.

And what is the secret to his profit making success?

Apparently “trafficking underage hookers” and “raping elderly women and stealing their handbags”. According to his Facebook…

Joined Up Campaigning From Labour

“A choice of hope with us or falsehood with Conservatives” says Ed Miliband this morning. Labour are briefing their key election principles will be to fight for victory on streets and doorsteps – not speaking over heads with posters – and secondly offering people hope, not falsehood.

This weekend they launched their campaign with a poster with a proven falsehood on it.

Makes you wonder about the rest of Ed’s ‘cast-iron commitments’…

Ed Insists on Privacy for Pre-Xmas Turkey Eating Rehearsal

It’s the talk of Hognaston, Derbyshire. You’ll never guess who was in the Red Lion on Friday… Only that Ed Miliband!

Most of the regulars would have missed the Labour leader rehearsing how to eat a turkey lunch in the run up to Christmas, due to the fact that his party insisted on privacy. “It was only a couple of waitresses who knew he was here, which is what they wanted,” says Tony Waterall, the owner of the pub. “He didn’t want people looking at him or for there to be any confrontation.”

Given Ed’s previous well publicised masticatory gaffes, you can understand why he now insists on dining closed doors. But panic not, as ever, Guido provides an artistic recreation of the moment the turkey tucked into the turkey.

Quote of the Day

Tory MP Nick Boles says what everyone thinks…

“There is a timidity and lack of ambition about Mrs May’s Government which means it constantly disappoints. Time to raise your game, Prime Minister.”
