It’s boring to be relentlessly negative, and The Knife has no desire to be uncritical of Dave ‘n Nick’s coalition, but just how bad can Labour get?
Hearing Miliband Minor’s feeble twisting on Eddie Mair’s hook just now on Radio 4 brought home to me just how poor these leadership applicants are. I know he’s got a degree in PPE from Oxford, but he made Ed Balls sound statesmanlike. That bad.
It does have a certain comedy value, but if Ed Miliband is really that shallow, unprincipled and evasive under gentle probing, he has NO chance of being PM.
And he’s meant to be one of the better ones.
