"Red Ed" Miliband wins the Labour leadership

Just for fun, you understand...

Inspired by Wee Ed's new monicker—endowed upon him because of the unions' support for his candidacy—I threw together this little picture.

Before anyone gets too upset, of course I am not seriously trying to draw an equivalence between Wee Ed Miliband and Josef Stalin—certainly not.

After all, Stalin was more than competent at wiping out his enemies.

Whereas Wee Ed, of course, just barely scraped a win...
He told reporters on Monday: "New Labour was right for its time and there are many aspects of New Labour that we will retain, like the idea that we appeal to all sections of society, that we are for wealth creation as well the distribution of wealth.

"But it came to be associated with a particular style and nature of politics and actually it got stuck in its old certainties itself and I will be saying that in a speech on Tuesday and I will be saying more about my vision of where we go as a party then."

I seriously cannot wait...
"It's about us showing to the country that we understand why we lost the general election and us showing humility to the country. I think the country are more interested in what I have to say to them rather than details of the shadow cabinet."

I wouldn't bet on that, frankly. After all, there are—no doubt—a bunch of people betting on who will be in your Shadow Cabinet, whereas no one gives two craps in a bucket about anything that you have to say. About anything.

Red Ed?—nah. Very Bland Miliband, more like. And my peripatetic yet potless Greek friend appears to agree.
I stand by my view that this guy is IDS with hair, with all the charisma of a plate of curried shoe leather. In as far as he seems to have any "ideas", they seem to have been designed by a computer program to tickle the erogenous zones of the rank-and-file fuckwits otherwise known as the Labour Party faithful (and the born-again, like Sunny), and even then both the MPs and the membership rejected him. Say what you like about David Cameron, but at least he's the most talented politician in his family.

Mind you, someone's getting excited about Red Ed—and it's not under her bed that she wants him...
Still, if I and many others are exultant that Labour appear to have been sold a lemon, it is refreshing to see that some people just don't learn from fucking experience. Here is the pantomime dame of British social democracy casting her lustful eye over the new 'un:
How will he look across that deadly dispatch box on Wednesdays? Younger, brighter, insurgent, hungry to score. [...]

With one bound he has won the generation game, leaving the ghosts of Blair, Brown, Mandelson and their damaging memoirs in a bygone era. All those wretched warnings not to move a millimetre away from the Blair doctrine are gone with the wind. Now he is free to write whatever he wants on the clean page he has created.

Ah, yes, you are hungry to score, aren't you, my Viking warrior? Oh, yes, Gordon Ed, my Norse god...

Can it be that darling Polly is about to get all frisky for Ed? Who knows—but I'm pretty sure that the poor little Greek boy, if not myself, will be there to report on the squalid thrills and filthy spills involved...

Hmmm the opinions of those too fucking stupid to dump gordon.

I'm seriously interested in hearing how these buffoons try to justify their 13 years in government. Come on guys, just what the fuck do you claim to have achieved?

He also has a bit of the look of David Mitchell, who's also an annoying lefty fuck. I wonder if they are related?

Fabienne: Who's Ed?

Butch: Ed's red, baby. Ed's red.

He looks like butthead

Fascinating. He states boldly that the Iraq war was wrong. Did he consult his brother on that?

I got done doing 35 mph by a Bliarscamera the other day and got a sanctimonious leaflet enclosed from the cops about how I was a obviously a heartless fiend wrecklessly endangering lives. 33 years of a clean licence up in smoke.

A reminder of the insanity of the Blair/Brown terror which was unleashed on this country, making sure I do my utmost to prevent the likes of the interloping red Milipedes ever governing this country again.

Christ, you must be living your own sphincters if you think that Milliband E is 'red'. Fuck, he is substantially to the right of the old SDP; and David Owen, twat though he was, was hardly Stalin.

Doesn't sound like deportation to Siberia to me

The spooky thing is that Edpede has madder eyes than Uncle Joe.
