VOTE MILIBOT 3000

Posted on February 11, 2014 by

We always feel a bit bad when we point out in the interests of reality that Labour isn’t going to win the 2015 general election, because notwithstanding the fact that they’re only actually about 1% to the left of the Tories, 1% is still better than nothing.

milibot1

And as we’re having a bit of an Ed Miliband day today, we thought we should do something constructive for the millionaire leader of the People’s Party for balance, so we’ve put together a nice picture gallery of Not Very Red Ed to show how at ease he is meeting members of the public, and how if he gets elected he’ll be closely in touch with the concerns of ordinary hard-working people.

Take comfort, readers. The Milibot 3000 is ++ ON YOUR SIDE ++.

  1. Absolutely brilliant, love it!

    David Micro-band at his finest.

  7. liz says:

    Yes it’s happening again posts are disappearing and when I tried to get on Munguin’s republic from the blog roll it has gone back to Sunday.

  8. Croompenstein says:

    started scrolling thru the pics and I was thinking of Ted Striker in Airplane where the folk he was boring were picking different ways of suicide to escape his pish

  9. Vincent McDee says:

    Is that a trailer from the new Groomit movie?

    Just as they did with Tintin?

  10. Andy-B says:

    These pictures remind me of wee Willie Hague, years gone by when he said he drank ten of larger pints a night, to try and make it look as though he had a connection with the common man. Needless to say it backfired on wee Willie, and just made him look like a complete idiot, and unsurprisingly he still is.

    Miliband in these photo’s, is just repeating history, though no boast of pints of lager are needed, to to induce that utter, not in touch with common man feeling, he exudes in spadefuls.

  11. Breastplate says:

    If memory serves the bad OCP robot in robocop was called ED209.

  12. Allan Allanson-Oddy says:

    A pity you did not include THE photo of Milibot and Johann Lamont at, I think, a party conference; marvellous body language!

  13. Taranaich says:

    Clearly we just need to get Milibot in a meeting with William Shatner:

  14. john king says:

    This does not compute?

  15. Arbroath 1320 says:

    How to win friends and influence people.

    OR

    How NOT to win friends and influence people.

    Two descriptions but oh which one best describes Red Ed. If only there was a mechanism that could allow me to make that final and decisive decision! 🙂

  16. twenty14 says:

    Sorry O/T – but do the guys over at NNS have some sort brain freeze. Someone alerted them to the attack on this site and their reply was ” [Admin – It would be a story if it could be proven beyond doubt that any attacks were related to the independence debate.] ”

    Excuse me but what the feck do they think it is related to – An old schoolmate of the REV’s getting revenge for a weggie 30 yrs ago Get a grip guys.

    Did they not run with the story about the YES campaign being hacked or did they hold back until it was ” proved beyond reasonable doubt ” _ I don’t think so

  17. mogabee says:

    Seriously funny. Ed always appears as if, to coin an American friend, ” A pole up his ass”!

  18. heedtracker says:

    http://archive.is/yQMQu What about his taste in music, although even that’ll be a load of bollocks too. Squeeze that New New Labour cheeze…

    Ed Miliband’s Desert Island Discs

    1. South African national anthem (Nkosi Sikelel’ iAfrika)

    2. Hubert Parry – Jerusalem

    3. Paul Robeson – Ballad of Joe Hill

    5. Neil Diamond – Sweet Caroline

    6. Robbie Williams – Angels

    7. Josh Ritter – Change of Time

    8. Edith Piaf – Je Ne Regrette Rien

  19. Doug Daniel says:

    Is that vagrant a certain Mr Crichton?

  20. mogabee says:

    “he has” Lordy!

  21. Indy_Scot says:

    Scotland’s Top Ten Battlegrounds – Thought I would watch it for signs of bias and then Brian Taylor and Douglas Fraser were described as trustworthy voices.

    Needless to say, had to turn off.

  22. Brian says:

    Belly laugh, then I started watching ebc’s top ten patronising, sneering tripe.

  23. Acute nasality and an irregular lisp will always mitigate against the clarity of his commmunication.

  24. Dave McEwan Hill says:

    I just dug up “We are the Diddymen” on Amazon on MP3 player but I’ve no idea how to put up a link.
    I’m afraid since somebody mentioned that Miiliband reminded him of a diddyman the tune goes through my head

  25. Absolutely hilarious!

  26. wullie says:

    should that word GREGGS not have a D at the start of it.

  27. Les Wilson says:

    Sorry O/T,
    Currently watching the BBC ” the Ten Things” absolutely wall to wall propaganda, Stu you just have to break this down, it is so blatant it is utterly disgusting.Stuff the BBC,they are shits!

  28. scaredy cat. says:

    Sorry to go O/T but I just came across this and thought I’d share the smiles (at the expense of the Daily Mail).

  29. themadmurph says:

    Anyone watching this BBC BT campaign video on BBC2. Unbelievable!

  30. jingly jangly says:

    BBC Pish, On referendum program some idiot so called defence expert, saying that Trident will not move for twenty years as they cant move it to England as it will be too close to major population centres..
    He also said Border posts definite!!!!
    WTF What planet are these assholes living on…

  31. Theprr says:

    This BBC program is a GIANT own goal never be so annoyed listening to such crap.

  32. John H. says:

    When I looked at the tenth picture I really did think it was Ken Dodd.

  33. Brian says:

    I cannae watch anymore of this utter shite, an absolute disgrace.

  34. Theprr says:

    Arrrrggggggghhhhhh.

  35. theycan'tbeserious says:

    A face only a motherboard could love!

  36. Theprr says:

    Now I can understand the DDos attacks. Just wait until tomorrow, the Bile Bullshiting Corporation will have more complaints than has ever been known about a single program.

    Gigantic OWN GOAL. You halfwits, YES over 50% now.

  37. Theprr says:

    Last throw of the dice for the Establishment. Hahaha.

  38. Ian Brotherhood says:

    Rev,

    Can you please include the one of him with Mags Curran? It’s a belter…’MILIBOT DEPLOYS MALE PHEROMONE.’

  39. Indy_Scot says:

    What really annoys me about BBC Scotlands Tuesday night propaganda programmes is that we are only on the third one out of thirteen, and they repeat the programme umpteen times during the week.

    They are rubbing our face in it.

  40. Sandy Milne says:

    Michael Foot had a better chance of getting elected than this clown

  41. Thepnr says:

    Program will raise the largest number of complaints ever.

  42. ronnie anderson says:

    O/T Referendem Documentary,s Bbc 2, again the BBC dirty trick,s dept at work,interfering with the digital signal ,to reinforce their BT,s point that we wont have BBC in a Indy Scotland.

  43. Peed off with the BBC bias? Here’s the answer:

    http://www.tvlicensing.co.uk/check-if-you-need-one/topics/tv-licence-refunds-top7/

    I ditched mine last September. No need for a licence to watch catch-up services and if it’s entertainment you’re after, there’s always couchtuner.com

  44. ronnie anderson says:

    subliminal dirty trick,s people will think that,s the way, we would receive TV signal,s

  45. Tasmanian says:

    Gosh, he looks more like Hugh Abbot from “The Thick Of It” every day.

  46. Mary Bruce says:

    Really shocking bias from the bbc top ten. The imagery is outrageous. What does the euro mean? Here’s some riot footage. What will our relationship with the rest of the UK be? Lets have a wee bit more riot footage. Shameful stuff.

  47. Thepnr says:

    This program is an absolute disgrace!! One hour BT propaganda program. I am extremely pissed about this.

  48. twenty14 says:

    when could we get the stats to see how many people watched this programme tonight- I avoided after seeing some of the comments ( how many in Scotland that is )

  49. Les Wilson says:

    Stuff them all, we should join EFTA, peg to sterling, and tell them to stuff their debt.! They will soon change all this crap.

  50. Thepnr says:

    Email Newsnight Scotland to express you disgust with that program. It’s just about to “debated”

  51. msean says:

    I didn’t watch it.

  52. colin mccartney says:

    can anyone look more “tory” ?

  53. msean says:

    I have to watch my blood pressure you know.

  54. Les Wilson says:

    Complaint in, however they do not care or they would never have screened this utter affront to democracy in Scotland.
    Get twittering guys and complain on every blog and online discussion you can find. Someone who can, get something on YOUtube/ facebook. Let us create hell for them.

  55. mamaclanger says:

    Just messaged the above to a few friends 😀

  56. Thepnr says:

    Shit can’t email direct to Newsnight Scotland. I totally agree Les Wilson, worst form of bias imaginable. They’ve hung their Butchers Flag to the Union mast. I will never forgive them.

    Other than online I’ve been low key. Not after tonight, their taking the piss!

  57. Mary Bruce says:

    Have complained on facebook; BBC Scotland page. They have a post up about the programme, a few complaints already. Am off to #newsnicht on twitter to vent

    https://www.facebook.com/BBCScotland?fref=ts

    But if they can brush aside the report by UWS so easily then I’m sure they will just ignore our objections. They think they are untouchable.

  58. yerkitbreeks says:

    It’s difficult to be objective if like me you’re so pro YES, but agree the BBC is still up to it’s old tricks with it’s top ten tonight.

  59. Thepnr says:

    @yerkitbreeks

    I believe I can be objective, but even the condescending tone that program was delivered in was truly horrid. The BBC presenters gathered round that table were boak invoking.

  60. Elizabeth says:

    Ghastly programme! It had a jokey yet patronising vibe but underneath it all you could feel the negativity seeping through. That Louise woman is the replacement for Kaye Adams and to hear her you would think she had a handle on how we all think and feel. Grrrrrrrr!

  61. John Gibson says:

    Yeah, watching ‘Top Ten Battlegrounds’ was like pouring salt on my exposed brain, and I found the condescending voice-over person very, VERY irritating.

    Felt strangely compelled to watch its terrible awfulness to the bitter end though – dispiriting stuff.

  62. Ian Brotherhood says:

    Very curious to see this programme that’s causing such offence. Did anyone happen to take note of the producer etc?

    No doubt it’ll be on I-Player in due course.

  63. Flower of Scotland says:

    O/t
    @Thepnr
    Took your advice and emailed Newsnight about Scotland Top Ten Battle Grounds programme and left them in no doubt how I felt about the programme ! So angry !
    As for Milliband , he’s an idiot ! That’s all I can Say !

  64. Arbroath 1320 says:

    Thankfully I did not watch the hour long party political broadcast tonight on BBC at 9 p.m. as a few others have done. Reading some of the comments from people who have it’s just as well I didn’t cause if I had I’m in no doubt our t.v. would have come crashing down of the wall, and we can’t afford a replacement. 🙂

  65. TheGreatBaldo says:

    Things that got me really angry was….

    ‘Lets look at the other options…..The Euro’

    The Scottish Govt hasn’t even suggested using it, even if they had we wouldn’t be able join for at least 2 years and we don’t even qualify anyway.

    The people of Scotland were told tonight be our supposedly balanced national broadcaster….

    ‘Vote YES and you might end up in the Euro’

    Darling and McDougall themselves couldnae have written a better script as it legitimised one of their more ludicrous scare stories.

  66. Ian Brotherhood says:

    @Mary Bruce –

    ‘They think they are untouchable.’

    They are.

    For now.

  67. Ronnie says:

    Believe the voice-over was one John Gordon Sinclair.

  68. Vincent McDee says:

    It seems the BBC is reporting on the WOS Denial of Service attack, see here:

    http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/technology-26136774

    “Online security specialists Cloudflare said it recorded the “biggest” attack of its kind on Monday.

    Hackers used weaknesses in the Network Time Protocol (NTP), a system used to synchronise computer clocks, to flood servers with huge amounts of data.

    The technique could potentially be used to force popular services offline.

    Several experts had predicted that the NTP would be used for malicious purposes.

    The target of this latest onslaught is unknown, but it was directed at servers in Europe, Cloudflare said.

    Attackers used a well-known method to bring down a system known as Denial of Service (DoS) – in which huge amounts of data are forced on a target, causing it to fall over”

  69. Thepnr says:

    @Vincent McDee

    Looks like an excuse for pro-indy websites going offline before the referendum. Sure others will be hit just to keep up the facade.

    Wait! just gotta zip the heed back up again.

  70. Desimond says:

    Ed…like the ties…its all just so very purple isnt it?

    Nice to see boss of Iberdrola say “No problem. Its our duty to supply energy(via Scottish Power) to the people” when asked about dealing with an independent Scotland on a BBC Scotland special.

    Has anyone saw a Scottish News program include the Barclays Bank Boss saying “We’d just deal with it” if and when we vote YES.

  71. Les Wilson says:

    I have taken things in my stride up to now,but now I feel very angry and am going to put 110% into YES, everything I can do I will do. We need shot of all these shitbags,we can never flourish being lorded over by scum like the BBC, and the whole of the Unionist crowd.

    I hope all who say this utterly BIAS crap, feel affronted, as I do, and get motivated and moving!

  72. Elizabeth says:

    O/t

    I see the BBC’s Tim Read has tweeted this:

    @TimReidBBC: I’m told UK govt is likely to rule out formal #currency union with Scotland. Chancellor due to set out govt position later this week.

  73. Bill C says:

    O/t but potentially very important. Wee rumour well actually an explosive rumour that UK Gov is ready to declare that there will be no currency union. Anybody heard anything?

  74. Arbroath 1320 says:

    Max Keiser was discussing Scotland and the independence referendum in his programme tonight. Let’s just say independence, more specifically the financial plans after independence have been Keiserized! 🙂

    http://rt.com/shows/keiser-report/episode-561-max-keiser-392/

  75. creigs1707repeal says:

    O/T – Apologies.

    Saw BBC Scottish news tonight. Apparently there is to be an official Government announcement this week, stating that the rUK will not accept a currency union with indy Scotland.

    Did anyone hear that or did I pick it up wrong?

  76. Alan Mackintosh says:

    OT Heard a piece this morning on GMS, during the Highland News bulletin at 8.30. Had Sandy Adams, boss of Springfield Homes on. Gave a very positive take on why Indy was a good thing and how it would lead to investment and jobs. A very good counterpoint to Inverness’s own Alan Savage, (he of moving his company, Orion, south a few days ago and BT donor). Springfield have 1000 employees and are a very good builder, based near Elgin but operating in the central belt and with businesses in Germany as well. Well worth tracking it down. Will look for a linky…

  77. Les Wilson says:

    Now we have that ancient Barry Humphries on STV Tonight (yes Dame Edna!) of course after the small talk the expected came about near the end when he was asked to comment on Scottish Independence.
    He commented on “people don’t know enough”, but whatever is best for Scotland is what he hopes for. Not quite what the expected to get. For once.

  78. Les Wilson says:

    All the crap reiterated now on Newsnight,I am fizzing!

  79. heedtracker says:

    That BBC thing wiped the smirk of my face. Can they get anymore corrupt? We’re getting charged over 300 million quid a year to have them demolish Scottish democracy which must be one of the most spectacular attempts ever attempted by one state to try and control the mind set of another. WOnder what they’ll all if they can’t stop Scottish independence? They surely can’t denigrate Scotland as a nation state very much more than they have already.

  80. Arbroath 1320 says:

    Anyone who watches Max Keiser will see him rip into Alex Salmond for going down the keep the pound and Bank of England route. He, Max Keiser, appears to be quite adamant that this is the wrong way to go. In fact he quite openly promotes the idea of an independent Scottish currency, but not what we would call a normal currency but a cryptocurrency.

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cryptocurrency

    Folks might not know this but Iceland is about to start producing its own cryptocurrency called the auroracoin.

    http://auroracoin.org/

    In my usual naive way of thinking, if the rumours about Westminster not agreeing to a currency union then the time has come to:

    1) tell them to go take a long walk off the shortest plank they can find and make sure they are carrying the £1.3 Trillion debt on their backs when they do it!

    2) refuse to accept ANY debt from rUK when we gain independence

    3) following Max’s idea tonight we should start investigating the creation of our own digital currency, the saorsacoin.

  81. Ian Brotherhood says:

    They can rule out whatever they like.

    Right now, some very important people are fannying about with sandbags, bemoaning the shortage of ‘domestics’, and watching a soup of shite-laden silt being sucked-up by un-belie-vably expensive carpets.

    I’m sure AS and the SG will, in the interests of common decency, decline responding to these rumours, thus giving Gideon/Cameron the chance to postpone formal pronouncements on Scottish concerns until they have their own (closest friends and funders’) houses in order.

    No-one likes seeing toffs up to the knees in their own effluent. Beastly business altogether, what?

  82. Patrician says:

    We shouldn’t mock people for their physical appearance. However, there isn’t one of those pictures where he looks like a natural person, he just doesn’t seem to be able to relax.

    On the 7th picture down, if you photo-shopped a school tie onto him, you would be hard pressed not to ask him “So Ed, what do you want to do when you leave school?”

  83. Calgacus MacAndrews says:

    If you are a tad miffed with our National broadcaster this evening, there’s something can be done to help redress the TRUTH balance that BBC Scotland have messed-up on yet again …

    Go onto every UK and International news outlet website you can find (except the BBC perhaps), choose a popular and vaguely relevant page or thread that allows comments with links, and post this link to Derek Bateman letting rip re the BBC and the UWS study:-

    http://archive.is/dnpoc

    Also post in your own words what you think this could mean for the BBC’s once-cherished global reputation for impartial coverage. Encourage people from around the world to read what Derek has written.

    Do it early, do it often, and do it deliberately.

    And mention Wings Over Scotland while you are at it.

    I’m awa’ tae hae a go on Al Jazeera the noo …

  84. Why,do you not call him his correct name Millibean as in Mr.

  85. Andrew Morton says:

    Just read the BBC ‘version’ of the currency story,

    ‘UK Chancellor George Osborne is likely to rule out a formal currency union with an independent Scotland, government sources have told the BBC.’

    So either the Guardian is wrong or the BBC is wrong. Take your pick. I suspect that we’ll be treated to a rerun of the ‘no we almost certainly might not probably won’t agree to share the currency’ routine. Ladbrokes still have it as a 99% certainty that they will agree.

  86. Weedeochandorris says:

    O/T and dont know if reported alreay. The Glasgow grassroots on the Green event has been cancelled. Complaints that it was organised by Indy for Indy seems to be the argument. 🙁

  87. msean says:

    It is a fully traded currency,they can keep it,we can use it because it is ours also.However,a Scots’ pound can be done if needed,it’s not as if the country is broke what with all that unstable oil to back it.

  88. Ian Brotherhood says:

    @Patrician –

    Agreed.

    But this goes beyond mere mockery. I truly believed that the first photo was some photo-shopped effort. At the least, it looks very staged. The woman looks as fake as Miliband. (Who ‘cries’ like that?)

    It reminded me of Duane Hanson ‘sculptures’:

  89. Les Wilson says:

    My complaint to the BBC

    Full Complaint: I wish to make a very strong complaint against the BIAS content of the program ( Scotland’s TOP TEN BATTLEGROUND ) put out tonight which I found abhorrent. There was absolutely NO pretence here and it is has showed that all that is being said about the present BBC is that it is extremely BIAS against a YES vote for Independence. This will be broken down and taken apart to show just how bad this is, it is disgusting. There should be an immediate apology to the people of Scotland.

  90. Calgacus MacAndrews says:

    @Weedeochandorris says:
    O/T and don’t know if reported already. The Glasgow grassroots on the Green event has been cancelled.

    The ‘mid-September’ timing seemed completely bonkers to me.

    A get-together before the final weeks of the campaign begins (e.g. mid-August) might have been an idea.

  91. twenty14 says:

    hello – anybody there ???

  92. msean says:

    Re the nae currency union thing, we would have no debt,no house of lords,no rbs,and best of all,no neo tories.it’s a bargain at any price. 🙂

  93. lochside says:

    This Referendum top ten programme is the most deliberately constructed piece of BT propaganda yet. The subliminal distorted pictures; the frivolous, snidey tone of narrator John Gordon Sinclair (yeah that political and thespian heavyweight); the charade of the usual suspects BBC dupes:

    (Toodleloothenoo, Dougie Fraser with his St. Georges Cross tie,Kaye Adams’s clone,Weevil Anderson) sitting round a table with their mock serious expressions and generally trying to murder any idea that Scots are in anyway different from the English in regard to immigration,welfare etc. blah blah blah.

    The most blatant lie, amongst many, was Jo Armstrong’s (who is she..’Independent Economist? aye, right)analysis of how the Barnet formula works. Apparently we get ‘per capita’ of North Sea oil which is the same as the Barnett ‘transfer payment’ given to us. If that’s the case, what would that equate to for the RUK, say £300 million?

    ..but oil is decreasing and even an Indy Scotland with a 90% share,presumably instead of 8.9% the good lady suggested we’ll have less?? JG Sinclair emphasised that point at the end, just to ensure the hard of thinking hadn’t missed it. But what about all the tax revenue we contribute as well?

    One other point: just watched Glen Campbell on Newsnicht stalling Blair Jenkins from getting any word of criticism in about the Documentary. Instead sterile argument about Osborne ‘might’ refuse to share currency. He was ably assisted by Jackie Baillie, Director of BT.

  94. Papadocx says:

    Government source states Osbourne LIKELY to rule out formal currency union.

    Obviously government source ain’t to important as he doesn’t know the definite answer.

    Are we going to get an informal monetary union like wot ireland used for 40/50 years.

    If Osbourne rules out currency union then watch the £ in the money markets.

    BLAIR JENKINS called it spot on. BT ARE LOOSING IT AND ARE TRYING TO PUT A BREAK ON
    MOVE TO YES. GET IT UP EM.

  95. Ian Brotherhood says:

    @lochside –

    Sometimes it really is hard to resist the temptation to write names down in a wee book a la Dad’s Army, but from the sounds of it, that programme would be as good a place to start as any.

    John Gordon Sinclair?

    Wow…

    Now, I really do want to see it all.

  96. ayemachrihanish says:

    Brilliant news on the currency – as this BT boil will finally get lanced by the rating agencies/ bond holders and the BoE

    These unionist politicians are beyond stupid – this is weapons grade stupidity. These three dim wts honestly think the international financial markets/ uk bond holders will cooperate in their latest project fear campaign.

    If tomorrow they are stupid enough to pull the trigger on this stunt – it will be crushed by Friday with major back peddling…

    Seriously – they can’t be that stupid – can they???

  97. CameronB says:

    I mentioned plutocratic elites the other day, when I was droning on about Aristotle and ‘other-ing’.

    Is the City of London a corporation or is it under democratic control?
    http://www.cityoflondon.gov.uk/about-the-city/how-we-work/elections-and-wards/Pages/worker-registration.aspx

  98. twenty14 says:

    Not happy about these marches being cancelled – something doesn’t smell right.

    Rev – can we have our own March – I’m sure we could crowd fund a 80,000 strong march…wherever

  99. msean says:

    Might ,could,possibly,almost will, some uncertainty, blah blah etc. Usual stuff lol. No newspapers or media in favour,yet YES support still growing,these jockos are getting out of control.They need a positive argument,not continual stream of negativity.

  100. Papadocx says:

    GOOD OLD ENGLISH BROADCASTING SERVICE.

    THEY HATE SCOTLAND.
    THE ESTABLISHMENT HATE SCOTLAND.
    WESTMINSTER HATES SCOTLAND.

    WHY DONT THEY JUST BOOT US OUT OF THEIR UNION AND BE DONE WITH US PARASITES.

    CAUSE WE SUPPLY THEM WITH LOTS OF MONEY AND THEY LIKE THAT.
    ITS JUST US THEY HATE. ERADICATION SOUNDS ATTRACTIVE TO THEM.

    This is Dereck’s opinion on the program which is not going to let Les Wilson sleep tonight…or ever again.

    http://derekbateman1.wordpress.com/

    I’m afraid I missed the section on the EU but then I’m not good at watching programmes which do lists and pretend it’s the hit parade. They’re striving to make it relevant and accessible but was it just a bit patronising in tone? John Gordon Sinclair’s voice-over was straight from Gregory’s Girl – he must have aged a wee bit by now? – and makes you think none of this is important at all, it’s a bit of a laugh, like when his mate who’s a window cleaner says that you ask the lady of the house if she can fill up your bucket and Gregory asks: “Is that code for something…”

    You are not alone Jhon.

    You are not alone…John Gibson.

    I want to correct error: Uk apparently gets £30 billion from N.Sea approx. I believe we get £30 billion as direct grant. Still doesn’t add up, as we all know.

    Also, discovered Jo Armstrong is an associate of Prof. John McClaren at C.P.P.R .Therefore, I was correct with that assessment: she ain’t an independent economist!

    Note to self: don’t contribute when tired and angry!.

    The Wee Ginger Dug has a lot to bark about and it all make sense, par for the course with Paul.

    @Ian Brotherhood
    I was thinking the programme line-up tonight made me think it was more like another old Brit military comedy show: ‘It ain’t half shite Mum’

  107. Vincent McDee says:

    Forgot to mention the best part is the final paragraph:

    “See – Ed’s an honest politician. He does exactly what he says he’s going to do. He said he is going to govern like Margaret Thatcher, and just like Maggie he ignores Scotland entirely.

    If we want real extra powers for the Scottish Parliament, there’s only one way we’ll get them. Over the cold dead corpse of Ian Davidson’s career.”

    Doesn’t it put a shiver on your Indy spines?

    I stopped paying the license fee over three years ago and every time they send a letter I send it back to Pacific quay with the appropriate markings on it you know English Bias corporation and other appropriate utterings that I couldn’t possibly post here.

    A Government source has told the BBC that George Osborne has ruled out a currency union.

    Since negotiations regarding the currency will continue into 2016, that would mean the UK would be a year into a new parliament.

    This would make it impossible for George Osborne to make policies for future parliaments while in government in a present parliament.

    It is illegal and outside the law.

    They simply cannot make a currency policy for a future parliament.

    Just the same as they can’t guarantee an in/out EU referendum to the electorate until they are voted into power at the next Westminster GE.

    Summary:- The Government source is talking bullshit.

    I’m sure someone will word it a bit better for me.

    @Ian Brotherhood

    I agree with all you say about the staging of the first photo, it did remind me of something I had saw before in an arts programme on the telly.

    Thanks for the clip, I would never have found that myself.

  111. Ian Brotherhood says:

    @lochside –

    Ha!

    Oh dear, ‘ow sad, never mind…

    I suppose ‘Love Thy Neighbour’ is now even more un-PC than ever.

  112. Molly says:

    Two points about the will they/ won’t they currency union.
    Prior to going live on air, should BBC Scotland (Newsnicht) not have contacted Downing Street direct for clarification or is this how the electorate are to be treated. This is the BBC , we’ll give ye the news once Brian returns fae Starbucks, he’s just catching up wi Twitter as we speak.

    Right your economy is screwed, there is no foreseeable easy fix. The natives (and not just the rabble rousers in the north) are getting restless at your complete indifference/ incompetence to their plight. What do you do?

    1. Target a bogeyman, Mr Dangerous.

    2.bad mouth him at every turn , in fact get all your friends to do that too, especially if they have access to mm let’s say the media/ press.

    3.pick a time, when you see the natives starting to desert you but if someone throws them a lifeline, they’ll hesitate.

    4. Lob in something with maximum impact but leave just enough room for doubt. On the one hand ,doubt, on the other hand if you confirm no, the fallout, the chaos is then not your fault (while conveniently covering your ass about the state of the economy) you calmly hail Caesar like ( he has the haircut anyway) point north and say he started it.

    I can’t say any of the three toy boys in Westminster impress me. They are look-alike, sound-alike, do-alike numpties to me.

    Thanks for the piccies, but could we have matching sets for the other two? I don’t have a telly and I have trouble telling which is which in newspaper photos and you can’t always tell from the headlines.

    Has anyone got a good way of distinguishing them in radio broadcasts? If I miss the intro I can’t tell which one is talking – not that it matters as it is all drivel anyway.

  114. Edmund says:

    I think Miliband actually looks pretty human and pretty likable in these photos. Who wouldn’t feel awkward having to pose for the endless media circus politicians perform in? We can’t all be smooth social chameleons – I much prefer an honest reaction.

    The UK media did the same trick with Gordon Brown, painting him as a social misfit. If you elevate style above principle you don’t know what kind of man you are voting for underneath the mask.

    Much better to point out his lack of policy or effective opposition than this.

  115. zeldomzeen says:

    That first photo’s hilarious!! Is it actually real?

  116. David MacLeod says:

    Oh Torquil Crichton of the Daily Record won’t like being called a vagrant. Love it!

  117. Dick Gaughan says:

    “Hug a Jock” didn’t work then?

    It’s Wednesday so we’re back to recycling the currency scare. OK, it’s all ludicrously simple – Ladbrokes are better at predicting how to fleece punters than George Miliballs. 1/100? End of story.

    Nothing of worth to discuss, just more Unionist pish. Next scare story please.

  118. Karen Campbell says:

    It’s Thazzaband! A persona and identity for the poor guy at long last.
