Ed Miliband: 'this will be a one-term government'

http://www.guardian.co.uk/politics/2...ves-tax-petrol

Quote:
Ed Miliband predicts that the Conservatives will be thrown out of office by Labour after one term in Downing Street, as David Cameron faces fresh allegations over failing to declare numerous secret meetings with rich Tory donors in the "cash for influence" scandal.

After a week that has seen the Tories battered by rows over party financing, embarrassed by a row over VAT on takeaway food and accused of stoking a crisis at the petrol pumps for political gain, the prime minister was accused of a "cover-up" by the Sunday Times.

The newspaper claimed that Peter Cruddas, the disgraced former Tory treasurer, mixed with David Cameron and large donors at more than a dozen private events, including bankrolling a dinner at Chequers, despite the party's attempts to disown him as a minor player. Cruddas's name was absent from a list published by Downing Street to show that the party was being transparent about Cameron's meetings with wealthy businessmen, the newspaper added. In new video footage, Cruddas also boasts that he had secured a donation of £1m only a fortnight before his resignation, despite Tory claims that he had never brought in a big cheque.

A Conservative spokesman said last night: "Of course, politicians meet donors as they do thousands of individuals every day. But the key question is whether these meetings influence policy and they categorically do not."

In an interview with the Observer, Miliband said Cameron's entire political project has been fatally undermined by rows over donations, tax cuts for the rich and the petrol crisis. He also accepted that Thursday's byelection defeat in Bradford West, where Labour lost a previously safe seat to the maverick anti-war candidate George Galloway, had been a "deep disappointment" for which he accepted responsibility.
The question is here is this government a one term government and my answer is yes but its alright for Ed Milliband to say this but will he be the opposition leader come the next General Election?.

Re: Ed Miliband: 'this will be a one-term government'

I think Ed is speaking too soon..Because no one wants his government either not even traditional Labour supporters.

I like his optimism but his party are crap and still haven't laid out their policies in a number of areas.

Re: Ed Miliband: 'this will be a one-term government'

I was hoping we got Government which threw away its retoric thinking for once sat down thrashed out policies which improved the situation. This government with watered kicking scream kid in pram called clegg. Who gets a spanked bottom if he not quiet or good little baby. It seemed the situation seemed to trigger all the evils of policies from the mad backbenchers.

Now why could we not had historic government say look this is major issue I unique and aint going to take one party views see this loosly whats happening clegg just nothing towing not his party line. The whole westminster to thrash out how to sort the issue out. We needed that second world war conflict unity to get us through this and still do. If labour wins I hope they do it. Together we will be stronger.

Nope the created the air it was someone elses fault it should never been about blame it clouded there judgement. With this atitude it armed it up got everybody fighting each other within public. As the government used a divide and conquor approach used it vent hate and hurt.

On whether Ed gets more than one term he wont he will get at least 2 terms. time heals the mind.

By that time hopefully David Davis is concervative leader So long he allowed to follow his own beliefs not party retoric please those mad hatters behind him. Which think this what cameron doing whether these is really beliefs if so its very calious thinking.

Re: Ed Miliband: 'this will be a one-term government'

If I were Milliband I'd be rather more concerned about my own prospects for political longevity than the next election. The unions bought their man in preparation for an outbreak of militancy and if they carry on with it, Miliband will not be able to keep dodging the issues. Listening to him saying a whole lot of nothing is embarrassing.

Re: Ed Miliband: 'this will be a one-term government'

Can't see another coalition for sure but then the Lib dems are likely to be slaughtered at the next election. IF the economy is growing and people are starting to see pay rises then the Torys will be in, otherwise the sheeple will have forgotten about the last shambles and put a spend and borrow party back in and we'll just have an action replay of the last decade only worse as there'll be no golden legacy to squander.

Ed Milliband is incompetent. If he is the best Labour have got, they might as well disband the party now.

David Cameron has presided over some of the worst financial situations in recent history. Situations bad enough they have caused people to RIOT several times. Situations which the Labour party should have been able to turn to their advantage. Something they've been singularly unable to do.

You say time heals. It does. How long do we have to wait though? They've had two years and don't seem to have made any headway.

What's making me laugh is Labour are not saying any new policies, so why will people vote for a no policy party?
