Miliband avoiding tax on his new £500k job.

As Thatcher said, the problem with socialism is that eventually you run out of other people's money.

What's wrong with what he is doing? He and his Labour lot bankrupted the country and he's going to re-stock his own kitty and jettison his putrid socialist beliefs - we can all do the same! Oh, hang on, wait there, no, no we can't...

My father used to say of the Labour Party .... " They arrive in rags and leave in Jags " ... that was 50 years ago .... now they seem to arrive in Jags and leave in Bentleys .

I have one brother who is an accountant, don't ask me to do your books.

I have another brother who has a HGV licence, don't ask me how to drive a ******* Wagon.

What's what his brothers doing for a living got to do with him?

Because until recently he did the exact same thing for a living, and was in contention for the same promotion. Just saying.

What are you on about? People are talking about the senior Labour politician, arch-Blairite and failed leadership contender, David Milliband. Who are you talking about?

Did you miss the lecture on Values and Standards? Bump what CasinoBoyale says.

Don't let the facts get in the way of the faux-outrage wagon.

Didn't know Air Cadets did the whole Values and Standards bit, fair play to them!

No, you've all got it wrong. The thing that is evil and disgraceful and detrimental to 'society' is filthy, capitalist self-enrichment and the huge disparity between the money-grubbing bankers (and Tories) and the poor from whose mouths they are snatching the very bread. This is completely different, this is honourable, socialist self-enrichment which will free the man from the trivial cares of day-to-day scraping a living so that he can apply his massive intellect to helping the disadvantaged. Whilst living in his million-pound house in Notting Hill, going to Tuscany whenever he wishes and ensuring that he can get his children into the sort of state school that everyone else can only dream of. I can't believe that everyone keeps mixing up the two different types of wealth.

I thought they were accusing him of making his brother look a fool by being a greedy sod at the same time as said brother is calling for restraint.

How is that criticism of the brother?
By even bringing Ed into it, the Heil is tacitly making him accountable for his brother's actions, as per JBM's post above.

Edit: Not that I care. I despise Labour. I just hate the Daily Heil more.

I must be having trouble with my comprehension, where in the following does it say or even imply that Ed is accountable for David's greed?

David Miliband has taken a lucrative job with a Pakistan-based City firm which will push his post-ministerial earnings to £500,000 – at a time when brother Ed is campaigning against capitalist ‘predators’.

Which bit of V&S covers you being accountable for your family's actions?
I have never attempted to lead the UK's left of centre party nor I was ever in the cabinet. Bit if you are referring to David Milliband adhering to his own V&S then um this bit:www.davidmiliband.infoOfficial site of the Labour MP for South Shields, and until May 2010, ex Foreign Secretary. Includes biography, speeches, leadership plans,I kid you not he's actually taken it down the website.Fear not, the internets is big. First thing I find:E.g. David Milliabnd, UN General Assembley, September 20th 2007:Today I devote my speech to one of the great threats to stability and prosperity in the world: the threat of global inequality. I do so because inequalities are not just morally offensive; they are also dangerous. Inequality fuels extremism. It undermines support for an open global economy. It corrodes trust and reciprocity between nations.Being in the Labour Party I am sure he applies that eithin the state as much as between states (giving it's their raison d'etre).

I don't know if I'm being slow, but that does that have to do with V&S?
