Ed Miliband/ Daffy Duck

When I first heard him speak I thought Ed Miliband sounded like Daffy Duck, now the more I see of him the more I think he looks like him too. In fact I am wondering if he has in fact escaped from Warner Brothers! 

I know this is silly but wondered if I was on my on with this? or has anyone else noticed this resemblance?

    Spot on Sadie.

    BTW; have you seen this?

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PZtVm8wtyFI

    this is an interview from last week in which he gave an identical answer six times to six different questions from an interviewer (who thought he had stepped into the Twilight Zone) - it really is so bizarre, it will leave you speechless.  A bit like our Ed!

    Charlie Brooker's take on it:

    And the blog of the poor interviewer is quite entertaining too:

    Politics really has become a parody of itself!

    I've never seen Ed or Daffy in the same room together. Might be something in this

    I'm not a fan of Ed (like Daffy though).

    Just watched/listened to the you tube clip & it confirms, what I thought. The bloke is definitely not PM material.

    It's disgusting really but, alas, not really surprising.

    how dare you slight such a brilliant leader. without his intelligence, passion and humility the world would be a sadder place. by comparing him to such a greedy, souless powermonger you make me question my charlton life membership! 


    daffy duck for prime minister.
    miliband on the other hand does remind me of a spitting image puppet!

    Im a labour supporter ( or anti Tory is a better description)  but it's hard find any excuse for that interview. Labour got got the wrong brother.

    "The wrong brother" - sounds like a quote from the 1970s Shaft movie!
  • Options
    He's the son of a socilaist, marxist millionaire, now that is an oxymoron.  As for 'Ed', he is just a moron without the oxy bit

    Never thought of the Daffy look before - he's always been Mr Bean for me

    I've had some more time to think about this and have changed my view.

    I actually think it's a total disgrace that publicly accountable people like this twat effectively treat the public with such contempt that they think they can get away with it. And I'm sure they all do it too.

    And why do the journalists let them get away with it? They should be held to account too.

    That may not be the stupidest comment ever on CL but it's definitely in the top 3.

    Yeah, they do all do it. There's a clip of George Osborne doing exactly the same thing (in the days he actually did TV interviews rather than getting Danny Alexander to take all the flack for him) doing the rounds. The trouble is, the whole point of the interview was basically "get a quick response to the strikes to stick in the piece on the news for balance", so they were only ever going to use a 20second answer, and he'd decided in advance what he wanted that answer to be. If you try to have a nuanced discussion in that sort of scenario, then you're at risk of the media taking the 20seconds that are most sensational rather than those that best reflect your opinion, and then getting a kicking for it. A bit like Ken Clarke did a few weeks ago.

    There's a good blog on the subject from Krishnan Guru-Murthy from Channel4 news here:

    Younger Lifers may not know that Margaret Thatcher was heavily patronised and generally regarded as not up to the job when she was appointed opposition leader and I think she'd have found life much more difficult with today's media exposure. It didn't stop her becoming PM and remaining in office for 11 years.

    What impressed me about Ed was the way he won the Labour leadership election, not by going head to head with his brother and out debating him, but by concentrating on this strengths - the trade unionists and making sure that he hoovered up the votes there. That gave him just enough to win. Bear in mind these people are the rank and file Labour voters - he appeals to them. He has a good brain for strategy.

    In PMQs he has regularly scored points off Cameron, but then that's not saying much.  

    On the downside he needs to connect a little with the British public, I'm not sure that he'll win over enough independents and floating voters to make himself PM.

    Every time I see him coming out with a 15 second soundbite on the news now all I keep thinking is "I wonder how many times he came up with that answer - or very similar - during that interview".

    Laughing stock.

    I don't know why, but this reminds me of (what I think, at least) is one of the funniest sketches ever:

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7Bq_dkPkQUU

    'I don't like it, but I'm going to have to go along with it'

    (translated from the original German; 'ich nichten lichten', of course)

    Brilliant spot Sadie Jane, perhaps we could  pair up Daffy's 'loony tune partners' and rivals from the series....... There is Porky Pig, Bugs Bunny,Speedy Gonzales,and in a new 3d version Elmer Fudd..........

    I wonder what politicians come to mind! Eric Pickles for Porky....... That's all folks!

    Elmer Fudd has to be William hague
