This is an important and MUST READ article from the Telegraph.
I agree that UK Labour Party leader, Ed Miliband has failed to capture the political initiative. However, I disagree with the suggestion of “growing up” and “showing leadership”.
Let me take leadership first. Whilst it is possible to learn about good leadership, I believe that leadership is an inate quality and you either have it or you don’t. Personally, I do not think that Ed Milband has the necessary leadership quality, and relies too much on passionate speeches full of the latest theory from Harvard.
In terms, of “growing-up” Miliband just is not a political heavy-weight with the stature of many of Prime Minister George Brown’s cabinet, like Lord Mandelson or Alistair Darling. Also Miliband is too close to the union lobby.
Surely, it’s time for radical action either from Ed Miliband or his successor?
