Ed Miliband - My Fake Diary

Thursday, 30 August 2012

Interesting this:

Gerry Hassan reflects on his recent public conversation with The Guardian's Polly Toynbee about the future of the British Labour party.

Toynbee outlined a prospectus for Labour under Ed Miliband declaring that Labour should be "the party of conservatism", of "preserving and restoring", arguing that we shouldn't be obsessing with the appeal of "the new". Instead, she said "what Labour has to do is blindingly obvious" against what she called the most "repugnant, malicious government" in British history - which surely has to count as a colossal overstatement (what about the Chamberlain government for starters?).

"Labour only needs to remember the good it did in office", Toynbee announced, reading at one point a very long, detailed list of Labour achievements under Blair and Brown, while at the same time only awarding them an overall six of ten.

As soon as someone tells what they mean, I'll draft a response...
