Oldham By-Election Result No Cause For Alarm

The Oldham by-election result of Labour winning the seat is no reason for the Liberal Conservative government to panic or lose their nerve.Quite a few cheap Jets nike nfl jerseys of us will remember that soon after Tony Blair came in to power in 1997 with a substantial landslide a by-election was held in Uxbridge Middlesex.The Conservative party who had just kept the seat at the general election saw their vote increase by some 7%.As a pointer as to what may happen during the course of Parliament or at the next general election it was, of no value, as at the next general election in 2001 the Labour party won quite convincingly.If anything can be learned from policital history it is simply that one should not rely at all on the outcome of a by-election particularly one which is held very early in the life of a parliament.The succesful labour result at Oldham East and cheap Steelers jerseys Saddleworth has been interpreted by some as confirmation of the choice of Ed Miliband as the Labour leader.The result for Labour is that it retained a seat that it had won at the General election, a defeat would have been a total disaster, but this result does not in any way secure Miliband's leadership in exactly the same way that the Uxbridge result did not mean that the leadership for our current foreign secretary William Hague was safe.The Liberal Democrat candidate Elwyn Watkins failed to win the Oldham East and Saddleworth seat, despite the sitting Labour MP Phil Woolas being disqualified for lying about his opponent Elwyn in the 2010 General election. The Labour campaign was supervised by the Shadow education secretary Andy Burnham, who stated that Ed Miliband's decision to visit the constituency three times as a determining factor for his party's success.Andy Burnham has stated "While Ed was in the hills in Saddleworth, Tory ministers were on the skiing slopes in Klosters". Well I think he may well be referring to George Osborne the Chancellor of the Exchequer and to be quite frank if I had his problem in sorting out the mess left behind by 13 years of Labour gross financial errors combined with their ultra light touch of regulation of the banks I would be taking a well deserved break as well!Whilst Andy Burnham is sniping at Tory Ministers he faills to elucidate on the whereabouts of The Hon Member for South Shields David Miliband. There have been many suggestions that David may become the vice chairman of Sunderland FC.Miliband senior has started a Limited company "The Office of David Miliband Ltd" following in the foot steps of Gordon Brown who with his wife has formed "The Office of Gordon and Sarah Brown Ltd" this all looks like people who have no interest to serve their consituents but to use the gift of being in Politics to create wealth and influence cheap jerseys from their various connections that they gained whilst in power and that seems to be exactly what Tony Blair has been doing.It has also even been suggested that David Miliband has approached the BBC with a number of programme ideas for Television. I do not know what titles he may have in mind but I suppose one idea could be "The Brothers" or a variation on those lines.Michael Portillo made a good move into Televison after he lost his seat in 1997 but he has real Gravitas and Charisma unlike the Miliband Brothers who appear to be more like androids than a TV personality or indeed a Prime Steelers jersey cheap Minister in Waiting!
