Miliband's Plan For The Country

Recommended Posts

Found this on the Spectator

Utterly terrifying

http://www.spectator.co.uk/coffeehouse/368...e-country.thtml

DM: Last year I wrote an article saying that ‘we needed a radical new phase in Labour policy’.

JN: But we haven’t had that. That’s the point.

DM: If I had come on this programme last August and said ‘The best example of a radical new phase is the Labour Government to own two thirds of Lloyds Bank, that’s real radicalism’ you’d have said ‘you must be absolutely barking;

JN: But you were forced into that. The idea that this was a choice on the part of the government is absurd, Mr Miliband.

DM: No no no. I’m sorry. It is absurd to say that the government did not choose to own two-thirds of Lloyds Bank

JN: (laughing) It ‘chose’ to own it in the context of the biggest financial crash for 80 years.

DM: And we did the right thing.

JN: (scoffing) really.

DM: Hang on. And on the economy, we have shown what a radical new phase means. We’ve proved that it was the right thing to do. Yesterday Lloyds Bank paid back £2.6bn. Now we’ve had the coldest electoral shower imaginable. We have to ask ourselves in other areas – on political reform, on public services and on international policy – what’s the equivalent of unconventional thinking? What’s the equivalent of owning two-thirds of Lloyds Bank?

This man is the Foreign Secretary. He went to Oxbridge. He should be our best and brightest. Not only is he spineless, he is a damned imbecile.

I want to weep.

He really is the only choice. Straw has the backbone of Jellyfish, Darling looks like Mr Bean with white hair, never mind that hes a "yes" man. As for Alan Johnson everyone I talk to asks who he is!

Bring Back Blair! :lol::lol::lol:

I heard this on the way in to work this morning, it was really quite unbelievable, even by NuLabour standards.

I'll tell you what would've been radical Mr Milliband, if your boss had prevented boom and bust as per his promise 12 effing years ago.

Millipede has been added to my internal ignore list.

The Lloyds HBOS theory is a bit simplistic and revisionistic. I don't think anyone would believe that the part nationalisation of the banks was a planned socialist act, it was a risky emergency move that looks like it might just pay off.

The idea that there's anything genuinely socialistic about New Labour is laughable.

Unless things have changed...

I was gobsmacked by Milliband on the Today Programme this morning. Delusional.

But then again, in the same interview Milliband endorsed Alan Johnson as the next obvious leader. Johnson, the man who has also given two memorable interviews recently:

1) I couldn't do the job better than Brown (when asked about a leadership bid)

2) I am thrilled to be home secretary. I thought I would only be in line for a junior ministerial post. (when asked about his latest appointment)

So, the next 'triumphed' leader of New Britain would be just as cr@p and, by his own admission, is even out of his depth as home secretary.

But, second thoughts, do we have a new form of socialism in which the rich and powerful are helped but the poor are abandoned?

More annoyed that they let him waffle on.

Agreed. Jim Naughtie is a well known Labour supporter/ socialist. He was tripped up some time ago by saying "we" on air to a labourite....but clearly has not learned his lesson

He basically just gave Millie the floor today - utter BBC propaganda. It was not an interview it was a full on Milliband Labour revival pitch.

I am sure the BBC will receive complaints - as it really was extraordinary....ten minutes uninterrupted labour propaganda...but like the police, why bother reporting Naughtie - nobody will investigate.

The boy Miliband was predominantly a left winger in his youth but he has been playing more midfield since joining Westminster United, where he is one of the more highly payed first team members.

He shies away from tackling tough opposition and, not being the greatest of strikers, he has been known to miss a couple of open goals.

Canny team player with good positional sense, never been red carded and tends not to argue openly with the ref.

Yes, he needs to go up against the wall with the rest of them.

If we were all allowed to hurl rotting food at the cabinet then we might feel a little better about them afterwards.

Having listened to the interview with Milipede on R4 just now the most telling slip was referring to Gordon "owning 2/3's of Lloyds bank" and not mentioning the taxpayer. Other than that it was the usual vacuous p@@s wind and bulsh*^t. Completely delusional nonsense from someone clearly petrified at the prospect of having his career in politics grind to a halt at the election.

Or perhaps we are losing all the good people, with the sense to know they are only human, in an age where the ability to blow ones own trumpet appears to be the chief qualification of high office.

Seems to me that many of the greatest leaders of the past were diffident and reluctant, and that the job can make the man (or woman) in some cases.

Or perhaps he's shrewd enough to reason that no person can really do the job properly in the form it has taken in recent years, but the likes of Gordon and Millipede (heaven save us) are the only ones stupid enough to try.

If someone with the educational and social advantages of Milliband can emanate such twaddle, maybe its time to try someone who once lived in a council house.

I suspect if such a person had been in power over the last 10 years we would not have seen the BNP win two MEP seats, as he would have been far more understanding of what an experiment in open borders would do to social cohesion in this country.

I wanted to run with your theme and say something about him getting a kick in the balls, but I couldn't quite think how to word it.
