    Miliband is Labours Achilles heel,But they won’t see it.Instead of listening to the people who he supposed to serve and not master.He tells us
    what he thinks is good for us and speaks in a patronising way.He brushes over the subject of a referendum etc. When he speaks he come over as an insincere charlatan,a fake and a fraud.

      I think that Ed has the intelligence and compassion to make a very good . . . special adviser. I think he listens, but he doesn’t know quite what to do. I also wonder whether he has the right people giving him advice. This means he has a problem with both his content, and his delivery. I think he does care, and should use that as his strength. He can’t match the Tories for being mean (looking strong?), but if he adopts the right caring policies, then he could carry that off. He just need to have the conviction (an alternative way to look strong) and argue the case for a more compassionate government. We have just had a conference on inclusive capitalism, with some very heavy hitters, but with an agenda straight from the Occupy movement. Ed could certainly build a policy framework from that concept. ‘Inclusive Capitalism’ would be a much more effective strapline than ‘one nation Britain’.

    The Condems are the puppets of mega bankers like Soros and Labour have sold out their heritage as they also have become puppets of the greed merchants. Just two sides of the same bent coin.

    Ed says he sees and understands peoples concern. NO HE DOESNT. Look at the election results for europe. Cant you see the message Ed or is your head stuck in the sand. If you dont get it now then you will never be the PM. You will sentence this country to 5 more years of the most evil,callous,hard hearted un-elected mob that has ever disgraced the word government. Then god help us all.

    to me Ed isnt being given a chance. it is right that the labour party hasn’t had the same media coverage as the condems and ukip… his heart is in the right place though./ he hasnt the money behind him unfortunately that those in power have. seems to me that those who bray loudest are the ones that are heard (and farage in one of his pictures certainly made me think of a braying donkey). i would like to know 1,. how much money has changed hands to keep them in the forefront and where it came from.2. what backing has come via the conservatives etc.the whole thing stinks to me.
    Milliband has made a whole list of promises that can only help our country and its people. to stop all this pushing the poor to their deaths or into penury. but all i keep hearing is..yes, and they all do the same.promises promises.because this lot in power now have gone back on every single thing they promised, all politicians are being tarred with the same brush. also where labour is concerned, they are following Blair and Brown,.Blair and his new labour label has not gone away. people remember it. people want a change. why UKIP? i will never know. What they propose simply adds up to more of the same AND some. Ed cannot do anything while this lot are in./ whatever he says he will do, they do something that will stop him doing it. like little kids. yu cant hav my stick of rock even if mummy says i have to give it to you… ive covered it in dog shit now so there. (thats how i see the libcons..spoilt little kids who use their money to get their own way time after time.) who in their right minds would tell that lot ALL their plans knowing they are welding such power that they will change laws to get their own way. time after time.
    we have to have faith that Milliband, quiet as he is compared to the rest, can and will come up with the goods when he is allowed to,. stop vilifying the man. hes got more experience than any other modern day politician i know when it comes to living on the bread line. having nothing. losing family to dictators. etc.
