Quote of the day: Miliband wants PMQs reform

February 9, 2012 7:21 pm

According to the Guardian:

“I find the Westminster village gets much more excited about it than the population, I believe. I don’t know how to change it so I’m not going to make false promises about changing it but I would love to change it if I could.”

    A new low point for Ed. You know things are bad when Labour party people look fondly at the “leadership” of Gordon.

      Your right, I forgive you Gordon, well nearly but he was for all his faults a battler of a politician

    From the article.

    ‘And while admitting he was unsure how to alter it, he insisted he would definitely do so if he could.’

    I have some sympathy with the underlying sentiment, but it’s not much use saying ‘I want to change it, but I don’t know how or what to’

    A quick search of Wiki shows the changes and which committee deals with it. Maybe Ed should suggest what he wants to this committee?

      Simple I will end the farce, because I cannot find the witty  response to even more stupid replies to my unfunny quip

      Poor Ed seems to have had his King Lear moment –
       “I will do such things — What they are, yet I know not: but they shall be. “

    So, in other words, he’ll sit on the fence again….  It’s becoming a habit of his…

    SNP ahead of Labour in new Westminster voting intention poll

    The Scottish National Party has reportedly tripled its membership since the independence referendum on September 18th, a boost which sees them become the third largest party, membership wise, in the whole of the UK. A new Panelbase poll of Scottish voters shows that this gain is being replicated in general support too, as they move ahead of Labour – not just in Holyrood, but in Westminster voting intentions too. The poll of voters in Scotland for the general election next […]

    Want to tackle UKIP? Treat every Labour constituency like a marginal seat

    There is a lot of debate at the moment about what we should do to address ‘the UKIP problem’. I’m relieved that the Labour Party is finally acknowledging that there is one after years of simply brushing off UKIP as a much bigger problem for the Conservatives than for us. While recent defections show that to be true, we have serious problems of our own – particularly in the North – with some traditional Labour voters switching from Labour to […]

    20 things Cameron forgot in his conference speech

    Yesterday David Cameron stood up in Birmingham to set out his vision to the country. He announced £7.2 billion of spending commitments. Shockingly, however, he totally forgot to tell us where the money to pay for them would come from. Even now we are waiting to find out how he will fund his pledges. Until he recovers his memory and tells the country, this will fundamentally undermine any claim to economic credibility the Tories may seek. But this wasn’t all. David […]

    Cabinet feud turns sweary: is the Coalition falling apart?

    Coalition relations have reached “a new low point” following Theresa May’s speech on Tuesday, according to Nick Clegg. It seems that, for once, Clegg might have judged things correctly: a Home Office source has reacted to the comments by branding the Deputy Prime Minister “a wanker”. On his LBC call-in radio show this morning Clegg said that May’s speech to Tory Party Conference this week “was one of the most misleading and outrageous platform speeches I’ve heard in conference season for […]

    To be a party for all workers, we need to protect the self-employed

    Ed Miliband pledged in his speech to conference last week to end a “21st century discrimination” and fight to “deliver equal rights for the self-employed in Britain”. According to Ed, this is the new frontline on which the Labour Party must battle on behalf of the workers. And make no mistake, it has a lot of ground to cover. Of the 4.6 million people classified as self-employed, only 30% have any kind of pension. Median earnings for the self-employed have […]
