Polling shows the public agree with Miliband, not Cameron, on Leveson

December 2, 2012 12:38 pm

Ed Miliband’s name is muck with most journalists at the moment, and David Cameron is the new ‘saviour of the free press’. Except there’s one problem for the media, those great reflectors of public opinion.

The public agree with Ed Miliband.

Here are the results of a question from today’s YouGov/Sunday Times poll:

No wonder the same poll has Labour 13 points ahead…

    It’s very heartening that the public aren’t the gullible fools that much of the press assumes them to be.

    As Charlotte Church put it so well on Question Time, this isn’t about ‘freedom of the press’, it’s about ‘freedom of the corporations’.

    4 reasons why devolution of NHS budgets is a good idea

    The recent announcement that the entire NHS health budget for Greater Manchester will be devolved to local councils is both a triumph for progressive local politics – and an admission by the Coalition Government that the Lansley re-organisation of the NHS has been a catastrophic failure. Some commentators have suggested that this will lead to the break-up of the NHS. I would argue that there are 4 compelling reasons why this move is more likely to guarantee the NHS’s continued […]

    An Irish Labour Party activist is proposing a new way forward on Northern Ireland

    The Irish Labour Party will hold their Annual Conference this weekend. One motion in particular is of interest. Motion 94 proposes that the Irish Labour Party organises in Northern Ireland. The idea has been mooted before, but this motion proposes that the party form a joint entity with the UK Labour Party and that members in N. Ireland would be members of both the Irish and UK parties, similar to the National Union of Students/Union of Students in Ireland (NUS/USI) […]

    Why Labour should welcome health devolution to Manchester

    This week’s surprise announcement from George Osborne that £6 billion of health and care spending would be devolved to Greater Manchester has caught Labour (and many in the NHS) off guard. All the details have yet to be agreed, but – based on the revelations in the Manchester Evening News, it is clear the proposals represent a big offer to the northern powerhouse.

    5 reasons why Labour’s tuition fees plan is a big improvement

    I was ready to be underwhelmed by Ed Miliband’s tuition fees announcement today. In recent weeks the outlines of Labour’s HE funding policy had been clear, leaving little scope for a ‘big bang’ announcement. And besides, cutting tuition fees to £6,000 didn’t look like a particularly radical reshaping of a system that is quite critically flawed. If the only policy that had been announced today had been a cut in the headline tuition fees figure I’d have been a bit […]

    Ed Miliband gives “official Labour Party position” on that dress

    The debate over the colour of a dress has been today’s biggest story. By this morning, the original Buzzfeed story had been read by more than 20 million people, all trying to figure out whether the dress was white and gold or black and blue. With Labour leader Ed Miliband doing the media rounds to promote the party’s latest election pledge to cut tuition fees, it was only a matter of time before he was asked his position on the […]
