Ed Miliband heads to Corby today, aiming to ‘own’ the by-election, and prove that by winning in a Tory marginal he has what it takes be win the 2015 general election. Miliband has been an active presence in all of Labour’s by-election campaigns to far, but is expected to play an even bigger role in Corby – the first time a Tory seat has been up for grabs.
Whilst in Corby, Miliband is expected to say:
“People in Corby have seen long-term youth unemployment nearly double over the last year as a result of decisions made by an out-of- touch Government. That’s why Labour will make unemployment in Corby one of the key issues in this by-election. I visited Corby a few weeks ago and people are crying out for a strong voice to represent them in the face of a recession made in Downing Street. Andy Sawford will champion Corby and campaign for the real change so we can build an economy that works for working people.”
