    Default McBride, Miliband and Brown.

    Worked together or are we now being asked to believe that they had no idea what McBride was upto ?.

    As Adam Boulton said to Ed Balls yesterday; if we and the other Westminster Village journos knew what was happening behind the scenes, how come you claim you did not?

    And of course, Lynton Crosby, the Tories election strategist, is a paragon of virtue and would never stoop to the kind of negative "spin" used by McBride, eh?

    The only difference between McBride & Brown and any other career politician and his spin doctor is that McBride has gone public.

    Wasn't Miliband's claim that he did know what was going on and advised Brown to stop it? Slightly different, although it doesn't change the likelihood that they all carry on like this.

    Milliband claimed that he told Brown to sack McBride (McBride himself confirms this).

    But as you say, they are probably all the same - it's that win-at-all-costs mentality again.

    Andy Coulson has hardly distinguished himself has he, and Lynton Crosby is (by his own admission) the kind of person who will do anything to gain an election victory.

    Malcom Tucker's the man. Well he would be if he hadn't turned into Dr Who.

    I can see the 2015 General Election having a record low for voter turn out. All the major parties are drinking from the same trough & pissing in the same pot. With no viable alternative that isn't a wasted vote, most folks just won't bother.

    The beast is stirring yet again!! :devil:

    it has nothing to do with football or NFFC

    Agreed Chriscl; there must not be double standards and the Tory's strategists are indeed no different to Labour's. However Labour have regularly proclaimed themselves to be on morally higher ground than "The Nasty Party", which clearly is not the case.

    As politicians go I actually believe Ed Miliband is a decent bloke........but he is not a natural leader and stands no chance in party tearing itself in at least three different directions.
