It's been predictable seeing the BBC slavering over ex Labour Foreign Secretary David Milliband as he heads off to make more money in New York. He's to head up the 'International Rescue' charity (sic). The man who supported the illegal invasion of Iraq that resulted in the deaths of hundreds of thousands and the destruction of the country will be doing international rescue work for £285k plus exes (allegedly). Like when Tony Blair became a peace envoy in the middle east it's another 'you couldn't make it up' story.
Mr Milliband has made millions doing speeches in the most unsavoury corners of the globe. Just like his former leaders Gordon Brown and Tony Blair.
Mr Milliband is the BBC's favourite type of politician. New Labour, son of marxists and never worked in the real world. Total believer in the EU and the global warming scam etc. Who could forget his 'carbon card' for citizens plan. He wanted us to carry a debit card that we would hand over to be debited whenever we bought goods. This would record our 'greenieness' or something.
He backed down on numerous occasions from rescuing the country from Gordon Brown. Leaving others like James Purnell to take the hit instead.
So farewell Mr Milliband and be careful that the door doesn't hit your arse on the way out.
Oh and don't worry about the costs of dumping a by election in South Shields on us. We'll cover the election costs of another donkey with a red rosette for you.
