I GOT it, three years after he was elected, I now know Labour made the right choice and picked the right Miliband.
and the country saw today wasn’t socialism, a return to the 70s, a union
manifesto, the same old Labour (some of the Conservative criticisms I spotted)
but common sense.
Why can’t the
big six energy companies, whose profits are in the billions, take a price

Why can’t we
build houses? Why can’t young people aged 16 help decide on the nation’s

putting money in people’s pocket and could be nothing more than an election

Conservatives have introduced a mortgage scheme making it easier to buy a home,
Labour suggest building new homes and getting the UKs flagging construction
There is some
flesh on those bones now, it’s a good start and certainly the mention of ‘My
Government’ was sporadic and far from presumptious.
And the macho
cabal...I mean challenges to the Prime Minister were clever, Mr Cameron now
either has to answer back and risk being accused of having nothing to say re
policies or risk saying nothing and being accused of backing away.
cleverly took away a lot of attack weapons from the Prime Minister and
Chancellor George Osborne this week and created an impression they could form
the next Government.
made the weather, Miliband and his team must ensure they make it rain on the
Prime Minister every day from now until May 6, 2015 – the date of the next
If they don’t
then Ed may have to grab an umbrella himself and prepare for a deluge....
