Miliband: Cameron has gone from ‘hug a hoodie’ to ‘wear a hoodie’

18th October, 2013 1:16 pm

After David Cameron’s official spokesperson suggested that people should wear jumpers if they were worried about the cost of energy prices. In response, Ed Miliband has said that Cameron has gone from “hug a hoodie” to “wear a hoodie”:

Very good.

“David Cameron yesterday described the rise in prices at British Gas as “disappointing”. Today Downing Street tells people to consider wearing jumpers to keep warm. Their crime policy used to be ‘hug a hoodie’. Now their energy policy appears to be ‘wear a hoodie’. These responses to the energy price rises show how little Mr Cameron and his government stand up for the interests of hard working people. He has no grip on the cost of living crisis and he seems to think the solution to this crisis is nothing to do with him.”

Along with 3 or 4 pro-actively generated media hits on the coalition parties today, it looks like Labour’s press, comms and digital team are going up a gear. More of this please…
