After 63 days as Labour leader, following an astonishingly long selection process, the Labour Party got the leader they didn’t really want – at least the MPs and Members did not want. Ed M has been in power – whatever that means these days in Labour circles, for 63 days. Deduct 12 or so days for paternity leave… and it would seem he hasn’t achieved much.
The Sun pilloried him this morning for his *Beyond New Labour* idea… and now Ed wants to wrest the idea of BIG Society off David Cameron and set Labour up as The People’s Party… whatever that means these days… and represent a squeezed middle, whatever that is……
I may have to take up drinking Vodka and take Cossack dancing lessons….
No wonder Toby Young @Toadmeister tweeted this morning that The Coalition could be in power for 1000 years….
I nicked the excellent rendition of ED as Buzz lightweight from The Sun… I do hope they won’t object. I thought the rendition…. not a popular word in the Miliband family, I suspect….. was good!
And here is ED….
In a final rallying call, he added:
“Join us on this journey which makes us once again the people’s party, the party of people’s hopes and aspirations, back on people’s side, back in power making for the fairer, the more equal, the more just country we believe in.”
Jeez..another farkin journey…. so last Century!
