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…

    Woolf and May should “meet survivors groups” over Brittan links, say Labour

    Labour have spoken out about complaints that Fiona Woolf QC, head of the public inquiry into historical sex abuse, has links with Leon Brittan. Brittan was the home secretary at the time when the dossier about alleged pedophiles went missing. And Woolf, who is also Lord Mayor of London, admitted yesterday that since 2008 she had dinner with Brittan and his family on five separate occasions but she has said she has “no close association” with him. A number of Labour MPs […]

    PMQs review: Miliband lands punch on NHS as leaders go through the motions

    Here we are again. Another week, another Wednesday, and another wrangle between Cameron and Miliband about the NHS. This is getting a bit old. Cameron attempted to get Miliband on the back foot – he kicked off PMQs by posing questions to the Labour leader about the Welsh NHS. Rather predictably, the rest of PMQs descended into the two party leaders arguing about who can be more trusted with the NHS. But, there was something a little more sinister about […]

    There is no such thing as a safe seat any more

    A couple of weeks ago saw the UK elect for the first time a UKIP MP – Douglas Carswell, with a huge majority of 12,000 votes. UKIP made enormous strides in the safe Labour seat of Heywood & Middleton as well, reducing the Labour majority from 5,971 to 617. This rise in the ‘acceptable’ far right should be a cause of concern not just to the Tories but also to us. It is clear from these results there is no […]

    We must tackle Ukip’s emotional appeal

    The result in Heywood and Middleton may have shocked some people, but not all. Some warned this could happen after UKIP took or seriously challenged safe council seats in the north, topped the national vote at the Euros, and polled strongly in Labour areas. Their highest average share of the vote in the 2014 elections came in Labour areas like Rotherham, Mansfield and Hartlepool. We’re told if we campaign on the “issues” people will come back to Labour. This fails […]

    Young Labour voted against supporting the free education demo, but the debate on tuition fees has been reopened

    Last night Young Labour voted on whether or not to come out in support of the free education demonstration set to take place on the 19th November. Reports suggest, they voted against the motion. This result could easily be interpreted as another sign that the argument against tuition fees is dead in the water. In reality, it tells us that opposite is true. The very fact that this was a topic for discussion at Young Labour’s national committee, that there […]
