There's something so deeply characteristic of Ed Miliband's mangling of the English language, of his slack rubber-jawed chewing of syllables that even a six year old should have mastered, that I can't even read a newspaper piece he's written without hearing the words as they'd emerge from his facial orifice. Thus in today's Observer he calls for an efficaw, coheren' and principawd foreign policy - perhaps wishing to forget that Labour's unethical, incoherent and unprincipled approach to diplomacy gave us a made-up dossier, a PM who lied to the House and the nation and a sea of foreign blood.
He also mentions, several times, something called democracy. He claims to be in favour of it. So that would include the end of Labour's Rotten Seats, an end to Michael Pinto-Duschinsky's estimated 3.5m fraudulent votes, many from Labour's voting 'reforms', a referendum on our membership of the EU and the British people being allowed to decide on issues such as immigration, would it? Alas, no. It seems Ed is only in favour of democracy in countries other than the UK. We're probably not ready for it yet. What we need at home is Big Ed's Big State making all those pesky decisions for us.
What hogwash. What tripe. What patronising drivel. It's like being lectured on human dignity by Vlad the Impaler.
