I was once offered a site manager with a severe stammer. I've known so many site managers that I can pretty well size them up straight away - and I thought this bloke was a tosser. However, I stopped myself sending him back on the grounds that I was seeing the disability, not the man. To make headway in an industry short on loving empathy with such a handicap must count for something, so I kept him. It turned out he was a tosser, and I should have followed my instinct and sent him back at the start.
Miliband's lunatic proposal to make Islamophobia an aggravated crime puts Labour in the gutter in its pursuit of the Muslim vote. Both Allison Pearson in the Telegraph and Douglas Murray in the Speccie do a more than adequate job of Fisking Red Ed's destructive stupidity and I need not repeat the reasons here.
Those hungriest for political office, those greediest for power, are always exactly the people we should never let anywhere near it. Miliband's betrayal of his brother in his lust for office, his manifold and desperate lying to cohorts of the electorate to achieve it and the dishonestly of the image his dags and cronies are attempting to project on the British public all betoken the strength of his avarice for power. By any means.
Miliband is a ruthless ideologue who will destroy Britain. Be afraid; be very afraid.
