Both Timmy and The Englishman have commented on Iain Dale's outrage on behalf of poor, oppressed Ed Miliband.
Stories like this are from the school of thought that assumes all politicians are on the make or easy to influence in a malign way.
They are all on the make, and they are all easy to influence in a malign way, Iain; we don't even need to assume this—we have, despite the best efforts of our lords and masters, all seen the evidence. Only someone who is utterly unable to look objectively at the political scene could possibly conclude otherwise.
But then Iain does title his post...
Ed Miliband Is Innocent, OK?
Of what? That man—that deceitful, disgusting, goggle-eyed little shit—is, at the very least, not only a complicit stooge but an active actor in the destruction of our civil liberties, not to mention the other outrages of this filthy, corrupt government.
Get stuffed, Iain: that man is guilty as hell. And he will still be guilty when he is hanging, choking and kicking, from the lamp-post which should be his final place of rest—and he will still be guilty as the crows feast on his colossal, bulging eyes.
