    Ed Milliband is clearly a very nice guy. But a Prime Minister? Sadly no. It is a cruel world. But some politicians ‘look’ like PM material. Others say like IDS, Kinnock, etc do not ‘look’ like a PM. Blair looked like an MP. Cameron – pure PR man – looks like a PM. Think hard. Imagine Ed on the steps of number 10. You cannot can you. Labour is doomed to opposition with Ed Milliband as leader.

      It’s not so much a question of what they look like, Malcolm IMO, it is what they stand for. Today, for example he is announcing plans to “solve” youth unemployment – by offering a 6 month”job”. This does not “solve” the unemployment issue – it merely defers it for half a year. In the same way the current government’s idea of “help” is by making them do 8 weeks unpaid work experience for Tesco and other big companies who could afford to at least pay minimum wage.

      We need bold measures to do any good – thinking big – Ed, like the coalition thinks small. Timidity is pointless – like trying to drain the Thames with a washing-up bowl.

    A vote to leave the EU would prompt fresh uncertainty over Britain’s security, Dan Jarvis will warn on Wednesday. In a speech in South London the former paratrooper will spell out how he believes an Out vote would be seen by Britain’s enemies as a sign the nation does not take seriously its global alliances against emerging threats. Jarvis will lay out a stark message that “Britain leaving the EU would undermine vital efforts for peace and stability”, and would be […]

    Weekly survey: English patriotism and devolved mayor selections

    Momentum swings behind vote to stay in EU

    Momentum has vowed to throw its weight behind the campaign for an In vote in next month’s EU referendum after it held a consultation with supporters. The pro-Corbyn group surprised many people earlier this year when it confirmed they had not taken a position on the referendum, despite the Labour leader and the party adopting a firm stance in favour of Remain. It was seen as the first time that Momentum had not automatically supported Jeremy Corbyn’s position, and led to […]

In comments that will spark a furious debate among Labour supporters, Blair questioned the appeal of Corbynistas after their leader’s overwhelming win in the leadership contest. “It’s not yet […]

    Apprenticeships pledge reveals another broken Tory promise

    Another month, another broken ministerial pledge. It centres around the delivery of a promise on apprenticeships, and it fuels the let-down felt by people and businesses in my Bristol South constituency. It seems a long time ago, but the 2015 Queen’s Speech highlighted apprenticeships as a big part of the government’s plan, with a pledge for three million new ones by 2020. Home to some of the most economically deprived wards in the country, Bristol South sends fewer of its […]
