Trivial Stuff About Ed Miliband's Hand-Gestures

Photo: TRIVIAL STUFF ABOUT ED MILIBAND’S HAND-GESTURES

I don’t like Edward ‘Ed’ Miliband – and that’s regardless of his vacuous politics. He is false. A false friend. An actor. His highly-mannered hand-gestures, more than anything, show this (to me at least). Even if he were talking about eating fish & chips he would still use those stage-managed, PR-dictated, over-the-top hand-movements. Such movements are meant to show us that he is SERIOUS. A True Statesman. More than anything, that he is utterly sincere in what he says. Yet these contrived hand-gestures show the exact opposite of all these things – they especially show his deep insincerity. In addition, it shows that he is following the prototype that was Tony Blair, as is Cameron and many other politicians today.

Because Ed is pretty much an empty shell, politically, it is no surprise that he should steal the term ‘One Nation’ from a real statesman, Disraeli. Indeed he stole it from both Tony Blair and David Cameron too, who stole it from Disraeli (though some commentators have mentioned Gladstone here). So Ed’s admittance that he stole the phrase doesn’t change much. Some phrases are worth stealing.

And what about Ed’s glottal stops, which, for some reason or other, his brother, Dave, doesn’t use? Was it because Ed went to a comprehensive school (according to Ed)? Still, straight after that he went to Oxford and did the hallowed PPE (Pottery. Pumpkin-planting. Egg-racing); and it is there were the elite are created, not just as Eton or at other public schools. Is he trying to affect estuary English or even cockney? Wanker!
