Typical media brainwashing through subliminal messaging; the headline suggests something unsavoury, the actual text reveals that Ed was at his current girlfriend’s party when he met his future wife. Duh?!
But they have planted the seed of sexual depravity with the headline, and the ambiguous references in the article will not shake the initial impression given to most people- that he is somehow unwholesome.
Now, I’m not a lover of ‘Red’ Ed- he’s far too blue for my liking, but get very annoyed when the media uses these techniques to sway public opinion.
(not satire – it’s the Daily Mail!)
Of course, the Daily Mail never likes Labour leaders.
But in all the years of watching politics, I have never before seen such vitriolic and personal attacks on a Labour leader – and even his family – that we have been seeing from the Daily Mail recently (warning – link to Daily Mail dross):
In fact, the attacks are so personal I’m even starting to think the unthinkable.
Could it be because Ed Miliband is Jewish?
Don’t be so naive to think there aren’t still members of the British establishment who really really hate the idea of somebody with a Jewish background being Prime Minister.
And after all, Rothermere and his newspaper the Daily Mail have a shameful history of anti-Semitism.
In the 1930s, the newspaper supported Hitler as well as Oswald Mosley and his British Union of…

I have a mad, radical idea. Maybe us working folk, earning a relatively decent wage should pay to ensure nobody is hungry, cold or homeless.
Better yet, maybe the wealthiest amongst us should pay proportionately more to ensure this happens.
I’ll do it- happily; I’ll do it proudly and content my hard work goes not to the millionaire employer, but to the downtrodden proletariat.
The content of Tom Pride’s excellent post has enraged me enough to actually write; I’ve been away from the computer after a nasty fall which left me virtually unable to use the keyboard for almost a month. This in turn aggravated my Depression; ergo I’ve been quiet, but reading that a friend and ally of the vile little excuse for a man Farage, thinks “disability an “epidemic” infuriated me enough to blog.
Epidemic is defined by Collins as:
- (esp of a disease) attacking or affecting many persons simultaneously in a community or area
- a widespread occurrence of a disease ⇒an influenza epidemic
- a rapid development, spread, or growth of something, esp something unpleasant;

‘Social housing’; what the fuck does that mean?
I’ll tell you what it means; it means you are poor; you cannot afford to buy. YOU are scum.
Margaret Thatcher started the decline with the ‘right to buy’ bollocks. When all those who could afford to buy OUR council homes had done so, reducing the available stock they had to come up with a new idea to hand our homes to private enterprise; so was born the Housing Association.
Now we are ‘untermensch’ who are unable- or in my case- unwilling to buy; untermensch because we make a choice- a choice disdained by the party of ‘choice’.
We are moving socially and economically back to the 1800s, via the 1900s. Low wages, private landlords in the ascendant, social security and health care declining.
Feel safe today- feel despair for your children and their children.
This Is What Democracy Looks Like: Iain Duncan Smith Election Challenger Arrested Over Alleged Sticker
Have they not learned their victims are our heroes; that those marginalised become famous by default; that there are MORE OF US THAN THEM!?
Lisa was accused of putting a small sticker on a wall two weeks previously and thrown into the back of a van, hand-cuffed and held for hours. She has been charged with criminal damage. The arrest took place at last night’s Poor Doors demonstration, the weekly picket of the luxury tower block in Aldgate where tenants in social housing are forced to use a different door to the rich. According to one onlooker police insisted her arrest was nothing to do with the election campaign against Iain Duncan Smith. They must think we are fucking idiots.
When Lisa and Class War recently went on the campaign trail in Chingford they were followed by police, repeatedly harassed and threatened with arrest. …
