ED MILLIBAND is a complete and utter idiot of the first order how an earth the labour party ended up with this champagne socialist professional politician god only knows (His brother is no better:)

Harold Wilson must be turning in his grave.

Ed Milliband has no chance of winning the next election nor has any other current member of the opposition including Ed Balls Up (Economic guru NOT:)

One thing i will say though is he must be loved by the japanese flat screen TV industry as everytime he appears on the box one feels like kicking the screen in:))

It says something about modern day politics that someone as useless as Ed Milliband could even be considered as a future PM of our once great country.

Uncle Nigel is going to murder them ALL :))))

CM

I've had first hand dealings with Ed Miliband and he has delivered locally, he seemed switched on and well aware of what was going on in his own constituency be it in the posh end or council estates.


Carlsberg don't do Soldiers, but if they did, they would probably be Brits.

How many times is canetman going to use the phrase 'champagne socialist'. Is it this seasons 'guardianista'? Why do the right love to band around these petty little phrases?

That's flaws in their argument, not about belittling a person or group of people.

Sorry Sevvy, but the Welsh have been belittling the English, and particularly Londoners, for generations. It's our default position.

 

Of course, when we get some back it's downright racial prejudice.

As opposed to calling the national insurance contribution a "jobs tax?"

Come on folks, there are too many thin skins on show.

 

It's a message board not the Nuremburg Trials.

 

We've already lost a few of our more lively contributors; let's not lose any more.

I would love to know how you earn a living as a "marxist intellectual"?
That is after all the profession of his father, the same father that fled Nazi Germany with the other male members of his family, LEAVING the women behind to their horrendous fate!!! And people want someone like that leading the country? And before someone says it wasn't him, Breeding!!!!!

Such as Gideon, 'Call Me Dave' (he always calls himself David) or the witch some on here were keen to burn recently?

On the original subject, people have short memories so the prospect of Ed Balls suddenly going on a spending spree of borrowed money might seem like a good idea to those who dont understand basic housekeeping

Others will remember at teh last minute

Unless the UKIP factor sustains expect a Labour win but not majority and the subsequent spectre of a Milliband/Alexander coalition

Yep, although in Osbourne's case that is his name.

Then again, running an economy like a household budget might seem like a good idea to those who don't understand basic economics.

You're seriously trying to criticise Ed Miliband for decisions taken by his grandfather, thirty years before he was born, in a desperate situation of unimaginable distress and terror?

Seriously?

One thing that perhaps could be levied against Ed Miliband's ambition is that, following his gaining the leadership, and after being with his partner for over ten years,  he seemed to get married to get a better image.

It certainly didnt occurr to Gordon Brown that it might become a problem when if you spend more than you earn you have to borrow the difference. One day that difference will become too big to manage

It doesnt seem to have been understood by Milliband or Balls either, given their pronouncement the other week

Maybe Ed could ask a Spaniard, Italian, Irishman, Icelander, Portuguese, Cypriot or Greek, or maybe he could follow the long Labour tradition of spending borrowed money till they get found out

Its a mark of teh uselessness of the Conservative press office that they havnt been able to communicate that message

It seems to have been understood by them far better than by many of the current governments of the world who have largely based their economic policy on a spreadsheet error.

The error they made was that they continues to borrow and spend when times were good. Keynesian economic theory is that the only way to end the downward spiral in a depressed economy is to reduce interest rates and increase government investment in infrastructure. Gideon is slowly coming to this view, but IMO, it is too little too late. I suppose the really tricky bit is how to gauge success and therefore when to reapply the breaks to the borrowing without causing the economy (assuming it has picked up) to begin to go backwards again.
