This article by the Telegraph is on the button. It’s a MUST READ, in my view. Check it out!

Friends and foes are wondering if Mr Miliband has lost the plot – Telegraph.

My sense is that most people don’t relate to what Ed Miliband is talking about – it’s too much latest Harvard theory and not enough about the reality of ordinary people.

The performance of the Coalition Government has typically been a disgrace yet, time and time again, Mr. Miliband is caught on the back foot, rather than pinning the Government down for due accountability.

The Labour Party needs an old-fashioned political bruiser. For me, the nearest would be Ed Balls but then I’m a Keynesian too or if they are really serious what about Lord Mandelson or even the Former Prime Minister Tony Blaire; it’s time for some heavy-hitters.

Any thoughts?

  1. Ed Miliband was the wrong choice for the Labour Party who should have chosen his more telegenic brother.
    The public do not rate Ed Miliband and after Chris Bryant’s speech which was riddled with inaccuracies, they will rate him even less.

    That said, Ed Miliband only needs a 3% swing to win an outright majority whereas David Cameron, who most of the public do not like either, needs 11%.

    The chances of Alex Salmond getting a vote for independence in 2014 are pretty slim because the Scots are benefiting from the Barnett Formula at the expense of English taxpayers.

    This means that despite his general unlikeability and the incompetence of his Shadow Cabinet, Ed Miliband is likely to win with Nigel Farage being the joker in the pack. Or if he does not win outright he will do a deal with Vince Cable, who will take over the Lib Dems when Nick Clegg takes the EU Commissioners job he has been promised, in 2015.

    • John,

      I tend to agree with you.

      If I were a betting man (which I’m not) I would put a wager on a Labour Party Coalition with the Liberals, with the Liberals being junior partner again.
