Well, well, well...look who's crawled out with a rent-a-quote on Ed's appearance at the Durham Miner's Gala. Not really a good time to draw attention to paymasters if you're a tory, but Sayeeda knows best...
Baroness Warsi said Mr Miliband's appearance marked a return to the past.

"By breaking 23 years of silence from the Labour leadership at the Durham Miner's Gala, Ed Miliband is handing his party back to Kinnock," she said.

"Red Ed is using the Durham Miners' Gala to cosy up to his militant, left-wing union paymasters.

"He's still driving the Labour Party away from the centre ground of British politics."
Well, he gets my vote if he does, luv.

Unlike the Baroness, there's a good chance that:
a) Ed's not there on taxpayer's expense.
b) He's not smuggled along a posse of "family" on the make.

Good. The "centre ground" of British politics can fuck off, it's been pulled to the right for years now.

A House of Lords standards watchdog upheld a complaint against Foreign Office minister Baroness Warsi today over her failure to register rental income.

The peer - formerly co-chair of the Conservative party - has accepted the finding and apologised, and the matter is now regarded as closed, said the House of Lords privileges and conduct committee in a report.
Yeah, get her out. Get a "proper" conservative in! What's this?
Two other peers, Labour's Lord Elder and Lord Willoughby de Broke, of the UK Independence Party (Ukip), were also found to have breached the Lords code of conduct.

No, it's not racist to stop illegals conning their way into Britain - or telling ALL immigrants that they must speak our language

Guess what? It's all Labour's fault.

Interesting juxtaposition between those two Warsi articles: Gordon Brown was ignoring the concerns and not communictating enough to people in depressed working class communities like Gillian Duffy. While Red Ed apparently has been talking to too many people in working class communities.

Or indeed retirees from Cardiff. Should they learn Welsh if they move there? It would be polite to do so, and I certainly would, but it's not really like eg some old people in Tower Hamlets speaking only Bengali. Welsh-speakers are bilingual. Most people in Tower Hamlets, let alone Newham or Hackney aren't.

Where she's wrong is that the language situation has improved a lot.
