Ed Milliband Is The New Labour Leader

Recommended Posts

I don't get how they could add up percentages! Out of all the them I prefered Andy Burnham, but it's like choosing the hottest bird at a weight watchers class!

Lets just hope that the public don't fall for the labour spin and they don't get back in again, at least David Milliband didn't win, he's a smug little git!

I doubt Cameron could have hoped for a better result (except balls maybe). That Milliband won because the unions outvoted the members and the MPs gives him plenty to play with.

Every losing party always blows it; looks like Labour is no exception.

It's a new age - a new dawn - a new future!

Gone are the Blair and Brown years - welcome to the Miliband and Miliband years.

A real step forward!

Michael Foot 81?

:)

Mike

Foot was elected Labour leader on 4 November 1980, beating Denis Healey in the second round of the leadership election (the last leadership contest to involve only Labour MPs).

David should've stuck the knife in Gordon Brown the day James Purnell quit. Missed his chance!

Good point. I'd forgotten about all that. I remember Portillo saying that he realised he would never be leader of the Conservatives after he bottled the leadership challenge. He highlighted the fact that David Miliband had bottled his chance twice. Mind you, David Miliband didn't want to lead his party into electoral defeat. He's left that task to his kid brother.

would have better for the tories if David had won, as, being vaguely electable, he would have held them to account better

I woted tory, but I did not vote for tory without an opposition, which we now have

Yep, here is a clip of that night when Brown was in serious trouble. David Miliband was the pivotal player that night. Boy he must be kicking himself now!

Yeah, but labour never votes out leaders, they let them hang on and go of their own accord. ie Kinnock losing two elections.

The tories, on the other hand cant wait to replace their leaders.

I'd be tempted to vote for him in the hope he'll rape the rich and we'll all burn together.

:)

if it happens im sure the rich who are left will get a right bending over, of course the one thing about this recovery/bounce/whatever, its given the brain dead wealthy who didnt even see it coming a second opportunity to get their financial affairs in order

That always seemed to me to be a bit of an oddity. Normally if one of the leaders of the two main parties loses a General Election, they tend to fall on their own sword (as it were).

Imagine Ed Balls as prime minister. It actually makes me shudder.

Harriet Harman as PM would leave me wanting to emigrate.

I'm buying overseas as it is. All I'd need is the plane tickets, or failing that the boat and disguise.

But there's no chance of such a government; all they've done is what it seems every party does when it loses, and convulsive into an unelectable form.

Why?

because ive never heard her utter a word that wasnt complete poop, its the holy grail for politics, even brown blair major and thatcher slipped up occasionally and came out with the odd sentence that made sense and was founded in reality
