Batshit's intelligence

Last night, I happened to be having a few beers with a mate who, some years ago, used to work for David "Batshit" Miliband.

Apparently those in the civil service really like working with Batshit because "unlike most other MPs, you only have to tell him things once."

So, that's where his reputation for fearsome intelligence comes from—people in the civil service who are used to working with thick as shit MPs who just don't understand even after you've briefed 'em twice...

Tell him once? How many times does he need to be told that he should stick his head up a dead bear's bum? How many times about the EU treaty? How many times about issue after issue?

Maybe he can regurgitate the instruction, which is an act of memory, but does he comprehend it? Likely, for he is not daft by a long chalk. Does he realise, in light of what he has been told that his position is flawed and should be reviewed? No, he does not.

It is a **very** small pond.

What- you tell him once
and he ignores what you say?
rather than twice as per the rest?

When my daughter was six you only had to tell her stuff once too.

So Batshit's as bright as a six year old.

So I guess if I called him a cunt he would realise that he is one the first time and I would not need to call him a cunt again.

He may be clever, but according to Rhodri Morgan Miliband has no idea and no strategy to solve the Lisbon crisis

The FCO is stuck with its EU policy - has been for 40 years. Only a cataclysmic political event will deflect it. Millibrat is irrelevant, has no new ideas, no new policy - he is just an apparatchik.
