Hypocrisy

Are you bored of the engineered Daily Mail – Ralph Miliband – Ed Miliband saga yet?

The media is masturbatory and therefore loves nothing more than satisfying itself through its fetish for stories about the media.  The major issues of real consequence are an irrelevance and ignored, presumably because they require application and journalistic rigour that is sadly obsolete within the UK media corps.

But this moronic spat does have some value – exposing as it does the hypocrisy of some of those directly involved and some of those who pontificate about it in their self appointed roles as ‘political commentators’.

First off we have the sick-inducing, BBC favourite ‘moderate Muslim’, Mehdi Hassan.  After his ‘commentary’ in the exploitative Huffington Post and his comments on BBC Question TIme that have attacked the Daily Mail, that paper has let it be known that just three years ago, Hassan was rent-seeking a regular pay cheque there with a gushing, arse licking letter asking to be given a column.  In return he promised to attack Labour from a leftist pespective.

Readers with an interest in these things will be aware that Hassan has been castigating the Mail since long before his begging letter asking to go on its payroll.  His scathing comments about the paper’s coverage of Ralph Miliband were not those of an honourable person suddenly realising the Mail could and would plumb the depths.  Hassan has always asserted such.  It was not the behaviour of a decent person who loves this country and its people, because we know what the Islamic supremacist bigot Hassan thinks of the British.  Below is a reminder…

Then there is Ed Miliband himself.  Wrapping himself in the cloak of decency in order to attack the Mail’s indecency in respect of his father’s views and opinions.  Miliband is playing the sympathy card ruthlessly.  Presenting himself as whiter than white, purer than pure, making a stand against character assassination and that indecency that so turns people off.

At least that is what he does when he is pursuing an agenda – in this instance, government regulation of the press.  But when he is in more private moments, among friends with his guard down, that veneer of respectability is cast off to reveal happy indulgence of those who revel in exhibiting hatred and distasteful sentiments, as Helen demonstrates with the sharing of this picture on her blog…

Ah, hypocrisy.  There’s nothing quite like it.

Miliband’s fake High St listening exercise shown up for what it is

By way of an update to the last blog post, the Guardian’s Wintour and Watt blog has the full exchange between Miliband and the unemployed British man from Cleveleys.

What it shows, setting aside Miliband’s economic illiteracy, is a politician who talks about listening to people, then no less than three times stops the man from making his point as he played to an audience of mainly Labour party members who, with typical socialist compassion and receptiveness, jeered the poor bloke for his comments.

Having promised the man his say in return for a free run to deliver a sermon to the deluded faithful, Miliband ended the conversation without bothering to find out what points the man wanted to make.  That’s Miliband’s ‘One Nation’ narrative in action.  One Nation where the politicians are stuck in transmit mode, immune to any contrary opinion and determined to silence any dissent, even when they take to the streets for a ‘listening’ exercise.

Miliband is indeed full of shit.

‘Make me the prime minister and I will get you the job’

So said Ed Miliband, to a disgruntled unemployed man in Lancashire whose frustration at the effects of Labour’s open-door immigration led him to say of politicians, ‘You’re all full of shit.’

Miliband told the man that employers undercutting wages – rather than immigration – was the cause of the problem.

This is the Ed Miliband whose supporters never tire of telling us he has a Masters degree in Economics from the LSE.  Yet with that answer he demonstrates that he fails to grasp the most basic impact on price of an increase in supply, in this case a dramatic increase in the supply of unskilled and semi skilled labour.

Businesses exist to make money for their owners in return for the supply of goods or services, and the greatest challenge for most businesses is controlling their costs.

However, the fetish of politicians and bureaucrats for creating ever more regulation, combined with the financial impacts of government policy at EU and national level, the costs associated with running a business have been continually increasing.  So when an opportunity to reduce labour costs – typically one of the biggest expenditures in small and medium businesses – presents itself, why wouldn’t a business hire the migrant worker who is prepared to work for a lower rate?

Miliband supported the influx of hundreds of thousands of migrant workers who increased the supply of cheap labour.  Miliband supported the scandalous borrowing splurge that has resulted in more pressure on tax revenues to service the spirralling debt.  Miliband supported and also directly implemented policies that have increased the costs of running a business.

Yet despite all this, Miliband has the temerity to blame employers for that unemployed Lancastrian being out of work and brazenly promises that if he is made Prime Minister he will get that poor man a job – presumably by further increasing the size of the unproductive public sector, thus further adding to pressure to increase the tax revenues taken from the wealth creating private sector.

That Lancastrian man was then schmoozed and flattered by a deceitful, delusional hypocrite to the point he exchanged a handshake with him.  That man was right the first time.  Miliband and his ilk are full of shit.
