It sounds like a horror movie, but in fact it it the front page of today’s Daily Record.
For some perspective, here is Nick Clegg vowing to do something:
Just to prove that the Tories don’t have a monopoly on having eejits in their leadership, Mr Milibean has opened his mouth and allowed his belly to rumble on another subject.
The full article is here.
I’m just waiting to hear Labour’s plans for closing stable doors to address the escaped horse problem. For years, generations even political decisions, planning policy and resulting consumer habit have led to the demise of High Streets. There is nothing left in High Streets for butchers, bakers and fruiterers because the supermarkets have taken it all. Simply by disallowing applications from certain types of business is not going to create a demand for others.
Milibean’s idea is akin to putting make up and lipstick on a corpse.
To really address the problem, he should be looking at a moratorium on the building of supermarkets.
There is as much chance of that as shit from an escaped rocking horse.
Labour I fear, are a shambles both north and south of the border. Strange things happen at by-elections but surely nothing quite so strange as this for a very long time.
Farewell Ed Miliband?
Looks like it.
Ah it doesn’t take long for the news to overtake the humble blogger.
It seems that Eric Joyce has been charged with assault and released on police bail.
This was after Joyce was earlier suspended from the Labour Party pending the outcome.
Johann Lamont it is who’s in charge of Scottish Labour MPs and MSPs and here is Johann shortly after she made the decision to suspend the hon. member.
Apologies, there seems to be some sort of error here. A picture of Labour Chief Whip Rosie Winterton has appeared instead of Johann Lamont.
For the avoidance of doubt it is Ms Lamont who has responsibility for all Scottish MPs and MSPs and not Ms Wintterton or Mr Milipede.
