He should be a shoo in for that seat.

Why, the families expertise in claiming taxpayers money ‘representing’ the people?

They are not the only dynasty in the offing, I hadn't spotted these others

Nice to see The Family "Seat" passing through the Generations.

There will be a Kinnock in the House , Nothing Wrong , Stephen is only Claiming his Birthright the family Seat.

God the freeloading and sense of entitlement of these appalling people beggars belief.

Wasn't it his wife who took the selfie with DC and Barak Obama at Nelson Mandela's funeral?
Classy bunch.

Yes. I presume he will fly in all expenses paid from Denmark as and when it suits.
How quickly the self proclaimed mouthpieces oif the masses forget their past....

I call them Champagne Socialists, those like Peter Mandelson “intensely relaxed about people getting filthy rich”.

Unfortunately for us in socialist politicians it is usually at the taxpayers expense, rather than private sector when running a company might give them a clue how they thrive/hire/pay taxes, rather than run them into the ground.

He has a knowledge of working class issues because his 'grandfather was a miner'.


And the electorate will be daft enough to buy it.

Only agenda for the average Labour politician is fuck up the UK and then leg it to Brussels / NATO / or whatever organistaion is offering plum appointments. Just like Cleggy will be an EU Commissioner in approximately 18 months time.

But, you get the Government you deserve. If people followed politics as avidely as the followed the storyline in Corrie /Eastenders we might get some decent governance.

On a bit of a rant watching the aftermath of Farage/Clegg when some people doggedly maintained that Clegg won hands down. They see what they want to see.

It was just a beauty contest for some people. sad

Excellent points both.

The Labour party is a load of shite at the moment. Is this any better than a bunch of old Eatonians claiming their birthright to Lord it over us?

TheCrackFox…it may look grim on that front, but maybe take some comfort that old Eatonians/Bullingdon Club/Toffs/Out of touchees, whatever, were the ones that left the economy, immigration, home building, annual budget deficit and other ‘stuff’ in decent shape back in 1997.

And based on what they were given back in 2010 to sort out - within the first experimental UK coalition since god knows when - with ‘the money all gone’, it will take some brains and private sector investment to sort it all out, rather than ideological rhetoric and more debt. Bummer, huh?

Maybe we should keep our options open, an Independent Scotland led by that nice Mr Salmond will look a better place to live by year end.
