Why Is Miliband So Unpopular? (Answers On An Egg?)

Recommended Posts

LONDON (Reuters) - Ed Miliband, the leader of the opposition Labour party and the frontrunner to succeed David Cameron as Britain's prime minister in 2015, saw his popularity rating fall to an all-time low on Thursday.

The survey, which said only 28 percent of those asked approved of his work, down 13 percentage points year-on-year, came a day after he was pelted with eggs in a London market....

Pity they didn't ask about Balls. Quite how the architect of the current economic disaster is being offered up as our next chancellor never ceases to amaze me. It's like proposing Harold Shipman for treasurer of an old peoples trust. At least Gordo did the decent thing and crawled off into well-deserved obscurity. Either Labour think their voters have extremely short memories or they have a very very low opinion of their intelligence.

...and Cameron is by far the most popular leader - god help us! Maybe we need a US-type presidential system where the leader of the opposition can become PM? What do you think?

Most folks make judgments about a person's worth based on superficial observations and what they may see in Milly is a big conk, a down-turned gob, crooked gnashers, unfeasibly lush locks, and an irritating adenoidal squawk. They can't wade past any of that to discover if he is anything other than a caricature. Steve Bell, the Guardian political cartoonist, has a brilliant take on Camaroonie ... he's rendered as a bright red condom, complete with the 'tit' on top. Oh, and always dressed in an Eton uniform.

Steve Bell has a website of his work and it's worth a visit for a laugh:

I have always likened him to a Wallace & Gromit character.

What would the public do if a stunningly good looking creature (avoiding sexist calls) was put forward for leader of a party. Would politics go out of the window?

And no chance, your answers are not on me.

Ed Milliband has all the qualities that you don't want in a leader of this country. When I hear him speak I feel sick at the thought that, god forbid, he becomes the next Prime Minister of this country. He has no drive, he is an out and out weakling, he seems to be bereft of ideas of how we are going to get our country out of the mess it is in. He will not give us a refferendum on th EU, refuses to scale down the ridiculous ammount of money we (the taxpayer) give away every year in 'foreign aid'. When our armed forces are weakened year on year by manpowed cuts, all he seems to come up with is a stupid grin. He has never mentioned how he would solve the immigration crisis we now find ourselves in. Which is now having a serious impact on our schools, the NHS and the benefit's system, not to mention the economy in general. I have worked (now retired) 50 years for this country and have voted labour all my life, something I will never do again. I cannot vote for a party that is lead by 'COWARDS'. The Con-Lib weaklings are even worse, it makes you feel that our country is slipping away from us.

We should have a vote of no confidence in ALL the parties, honest, the British people are in danger of becoming sheepul not people. Some just vote because they know or feel they have to. What if we said bollocks to all of them, and ostracise the lot.

The future of the county in Bedlington words:

Keith L: Prime Minister

Malcolm Robinson: Chancellor

Foxy: Foreign Secretary

Me: Energy Secretary

Kieth 1: Minister without portfolio (Clayton Corner)

The county would be in a better place then. :thumbsup:

Get rid of Betty and her blood-sucking clan and I, Symptoms the Terrible Benevolent, could become Head of State; I could only accept the post if it came with full executive powers.

The county would be in a better place then. :thumbsup:

Do we get to march on Poland, Symptoms....oh sorry, we don't need to, most of them are already here.

Oh, and Adam, me! Prime Minister! What about His Highness With Special Benefits of Travelling abroad and Annoying Foreigners, I don't mind down-grading to Buck Palace from my semi! As long as I can turn all the lights off around Pall Mall so I can look at Uranus Horribilus.

K - I don't think you have the appropriate qualifications for this roll as you are too decent a bloke. The current incumbent, Betty Windsor's second blood-sucking spawn, is already giving it a good go ... call girls smuggled in at night, rude to all those around him, horrible to the servants, trousering wads of cash when on so-called trade missions, swearing at the Peelers whose job it is to keep Betty safe.

    • Boy racers are using a cemetery as a 'racetrack' amid claims parents are letting them run wild during lockdown.
      Complaints have been made to Northumbria Police about youths riding motorbikes in the West Lea area of Bedlington, Northumberland.
      Isabel Easson, whose daughter Bethany Fisher died in a car crash, claims a handful of teenagers are terrorising residents.
      "There are two of three teenagers on motorbikes racing past the park where the children are, then going through a gap to get into the cemetery . They are using it as a racetrack," she said.
      Bethany, 19, died when Jordan O'Donnell's Ford Mondeo ploughed into parked vehicles in Bedlington.
      She had been out celebrating her birthday when O'Donnell lost control of the car.

      Labour was shaken by Ukip at the General Election. You don't have to look hard to find senior Labour figures that will candidly admit this.  But things have got a lot worse for Labour since - they get worse every week, and every time Corbyn and his communist cohorts open their mouths.  This week's Little Red Book incident could have been scripted by the spin doctors at Tory Central Office; it certainly had the Parliamentary Labour Party wanting to crawl under their seats!
       
      Senior Labour figures are coming back from Oldham and reporting that huge numbers of their supporters are telling them that they are switching to Ukip because they won't vote for a Corbyn-led party.  Ukip came very close to kicking out Labour in nearby solidly Labour Heywood, but things have now got to the stage that the previously unthinkable is indeed possible: loss of perhaps Labour's safest seat in the country!  Certainly the Bookies think so and have now dramatically shortened their odds.
       
      But, whilst a Ukip win would be welcome to many, it's not all that appealing to senior planners at Ukip, who are playing to the long-term.  Their focus is on the referendum - a referendum which any thinking person must admit was dragged out of Cameron in a moment of panic after seeing huge numbers of working-class Tory supporters defect.  Corbyn is one of Ukip's best assets, and Labour would come to it's senses a lot earlier if the Parliamentary Labour Party had the ammunition to oust him.  A Ukip win would put the nuclear option into their hands.  So, Ukip is hoping for an illustration of the very possible, but not a show of the very probable, or the disaster scenario of an outright win!  If you relish paradoxes this has to be one of the very best.

      So what's going on in Newark?  From a serious challenger, nine out of ten LD voters desert the party and it loses its deposit!  Those votes should have gone to Labour, but Labour is seriously down in the polls too.  Seriously down from one of its worst results ever, at a time when it should have been packing on votes!
       
      Nine thousand voters certainly haven't deserted the LD's to go to UKIP.  The vast majority of those LDs voted for Cameron's left-of-center, split-on-Europe, Tory party!  UKIP have taken both Tory and Labour votes, and are likely to keep them.  UKIP have likely also brought people back into politics who have felt they've had no real representation in recent decades.
       
      The LD screw-up in removing Clegg has likely finished the party for good, and we are back with three party politics - only a different three parties!  Miliband is poison, even to most Labour voters, and if he ever becomes PM by default it is going to be a very sad fixed five year term for this country.  A completely wasted five years until even brainless Labour supporters, who don't realise who and what they are electing, have had enough of him.
       
      There are still a lot of imponderables, but we certainly live in interesting times.  A change of leadership could completely transform any of the old parties, and even save the LDs from oblivion. That none of them can do this shows what a disparate rabble each of them really is!  Here's the real reason for the surge in devolution: nowadays people feel better able to do things for themselves.

      Cam is the man who wants us to believe that this time around he will keep his promise for a referendum on the EU in 2015, and that we can trust him to renegotiate our membership. Promise, what promise? Referendum, what referendum? Don't remember that; do you Nick?

      I think given what's been said about the EU on other threads, this site could well be monitored by these new EU trolls.
      Reading down to the last bit maybe we should start a new EU political party, seems there is going to be plenty of our tax monies given to any that do.
