Labour's last chance gone?

59 posts in this topic

David Milliband has confirmed he is leaving Westminster for a job in America. For mine, he was the only credible candidate to lead Labour in a general election.

Nah, he was just Big lord Fauntleroy who lost out to his brother, Little Lord Fauntleroy in the great All-Mouth-No-Trousers election.

In my opinion, the thing that would secure the election of a labour government at the next election would be the voters assessment of the performance of the coalition. In other words, governments lose elections rather than oppositions winning them.

Indeed, I wish David Mi£iband well. His is an excellent example for his brother and his team of no talents to follow. Now THAT would be an election winner!

I think Labour will probably win the next election, despite not having any headline or clear policies, due to the general ineptness within the coalition. Even their 'good' ideas are implemented terribly (or don't get that far). I think David Milliband would of made a much better leader mind you.

Labour have a substantial lead that's been holding up pretty well. For all that Ed Milliband is meant to be constantly under threat his party seems pretty unified and they don't have to do much beyond point out the failure of austerity politics to win.

With all due respect we don't know how hapless Miliband will be when he gets into power. We do however know all too well how hapless "call me Dave" and his chancellor (who always gives me the impression he'd struggle to count above 10 without taking his shoes and socks off) are as they continue to drag this country further into the mire. :dry:

The mere threat of Balls as Chancellor,would mean that Labour would lose - paying £140mill/day in interest charges alone,isn't helping the Tories though.Thanks for that Labour.

Its all a matter of opinion, of course, but the omen for the Mi£iband band are not good. Privately educated homes-flipping expense-manipulating bully-boy Ba££s ######ed up the Sharon Shoesmith situation and is widely regarded as a liability.

Sill, its the ultimate opinion poll that counts and Cameron's' failure to get the loony right on side, and to actually get the civil service to do as they are told may well lose him the election.

Cameron's' failure to get the loony right on side,

That's probably his biggest mistake. He even gave them the 50p tax cut and they still happily torpedo any chances they have of re-election (revolting on Europe, constant moans on ECHR, boundary changes, the Lords, etc).

Labour got in by having to do a hands offthe banks policy, inherited from previous Tory policies of money for nothing.

The banks had been so deregulated by the Twatcher and Reagan policies that they had free reeign.

The threat of Balls is nothing compared to the greed filled rip off merchant alternative

The thrifty Tories/traitors are paying more.

All attempts by the present shysters to cut debt have created more debt.

Cutting the deficit is not cutting the debt.

How so?

No, it is preventing further debt.

But by less than it would be if the government carried on with the last ones policies so we either need more cuts or higher taxes.

And?

How do you think debt can be decreased whilst tax revenues are falling (perhaps due to recession)?

Especially since you are against cuts.

That's about the size of it.

And less than it was in May 2011.

However, tax take is down:

some examples:

1. Vehicle excise duty revenue is down as more people choose lower emission vehicles

2. Fuel tax revenue is down as people reduce the mileage they do, so buying less fuel

3. Income tax take is down, for example, the introduction of the 50% tax rate in 2010 actually reduced tax revenue, contrary to what the govt was intending..unless ir was actually trying to punish higher earners

4. Increasing the personal allowance has taken millions of basic rate tax payers out of income tax and saved many more several hundreds of pounds a year and this loss has only been partially offset by bringing half a million more into the 40% tax band.

So, the official opposition has a deliberate policy of wanting to borrow even more!!

6. Twatcher ...traitors .... shysters :lol:

7. A £2.3m house with £400,000 mortgage. :lol: :lol:

8. Tell me Ms Shackelton, what was it that first attracted you the the millionaire Mr Mi£iband? :lol: :lol: :lol:

7. We've abolished boom and bust

8. That bigoted woman
