Well Done Jedward, I Mean Edward

Harriet's Impressed!


It was a good start for a young man.  Solid.  Dignified.  Then, suddenly,  a scimitar sharp riposte.  Cameron almost fell backwards!

I think Ed has been underestimated and will prove to be a dangerous and very clever adversary.  For a while the coalition will get away with patronising him like the new boy at school but his time will come.

I think that’s a very, very helpful thing for parliament and for Britain.  The most dangerous thing for British politics at the moment is that the LibDems simply dissolve away.   A strong Labour party will bolster the LibDem’s position.

Please though, the sooner those two old farts, Harriet Harman and Alan Johnson are gone, the better.   Isn’t there a deep hole in the ground somewhere we can drop ’em down?

  1. Once more, as boring as it is, I agree.

    I was all set to knock Ed, he hasn’t got the stereotypical voice for parliament or speeches, but it worked. He was on a par with a Bond villain’s persona, clam, measured, and waited for the right moments to make a point. If he keeps this up, he could change a few things in the house. Respect where respect is due.

  2. Horriet and Joanstone have been hapless for a number of years. They killed off Horriet by giving her an economics brief some years back, presumably knowing she was innumerate. No one in their right mind would have Joanstone as Chancellor, so I suspect this is a dummy run for a couple of years until big brother comes back as an election approaches. In the meantime Balls and his munter will have some banana skins tossed in front of them, leaving the way clear for the family dynasty.

  3. Not impressed with the anti-Johnson jibes here…
    A little light snobbery perhaps?
    Otherwise a good first effort by Ed, and by all accounts Gideon Osborne is not doing too well against Johnson, so the discomfort of the Treasury benches continues.

    • Are you seriously suggesting there’s anyone who supports Alan Johnson?

      I used to be a big fan. After all, the story of postie to Minister of the Crown is Boy’s Own stuff. Even as a rabid Tory, I admired his intellect and “the common touch”. Then along came the Professor Nutt affair and he demonstrated, without doubt, that he is just another politician with a complete absence of any integrity – at all, whatsoever, not even a smidgin.
