I’d be willing to bet you never thought you would hear me say this but I feel sorry for the boy – politician Ed Milliband. The thing is I quite like him as a person, he is a man who landed a job way beyond his competence level by default because all the other contenders were so much worse. Now he is doing his best to hold together a party that is determined to splintr into Marxist, Maoist, Trotskyite, and Blairite (aka New Elitist) factions.
As a consultant I worked alongside many such managers in business. The most able young managers are sidelined early in their careers because as they gain experience they will pose a threat to their bosses, so those who do rise through the ranks bring to their job qualities that define them as a mixture of David Brent and Frank Spencer.
Thus it is with Ed Milliband. He tries desperately to get things right, as he did with the benefits cap which the Labour leader sensibly supports. But his party betray him; last nights unholy alliance of bleeding heart bishops and Blair’s barons was a guaranteed vote loser as survey’s show a majority of Labour voters also support a benefits cap.
So why was this Blairite coup organised by Ed Bollocks and Little Hattie Harperson to undermine the leader. Surely the arch populist Blair would have supporteed a benefits cap. Or at least employed more Machiavellian tactics to deral it.
Well, the Blairites are not as smart as Blair himself. They let their obsession with ousting Ed M and putting Ed bollocks or Mrs Bollocks Yvette Cooper in his place as head of a Blairshevik party that would oppose a benefits cap. Why?
Think about this:
We dont support a benefits cap that leaves people in London destitute, a Labour source told journalist Mary Riddell …
Now look at what that means. Labour the party of wealth, privilege and patronage opposes a benefits cap because wealthy Labour supporters who own (via trust funds, offshore companies etc.) private rental property in London want to keep feeding their bank accounts from the cornucopia of tax money.
Lott at things from a different angle and they usually become clearer.
