Ed channels Phil, Ctd

Ed Miliband continues to channel failed Labour leader Phil Goff:

Ed Miliband insisted last night that he had “the stomach for the fight” and would lead Labour into the next election.

But he warned that unaffordable policies would have to be dropped, after he and shadow Chancellor Ed Balls abandoned their opposition to the public-sector pay freeze and refused to reverse cuts being pushed through by the Coalition

A poll published at the weekend found that just one in five Labour voters thought he would think he would make a good prime minister. However the Labour leader pledged to lead the party into the next general election, which is expected to be held in 2015.

He told over 150 Labour MPs and peers at a meeting in the Commons: “These are the hard yards of opposition. We are in a war of attrition, someone was saying to me the other day. Keep plugging away. We are winning the battle of ideas.

“Opposition don’t just win because they have the right values. They win because they have the stomach for the fight. I know I have the stomach for the right, and I know have stomach for the fight. I have confidence that we will win the next general election.”

Wonder how that’s going to work out for pommy Labour…that plan didn’t work so well for Phil Goff.

As much at home writing editorials as being the subject of them, Cam has won awards, including the Canon Media Award for his work on the Len Brown/Bevan Chuang story. When he’s not creating the news, he tends to be in it, with protagonists using the courts, media and social media to deliver financial as well as death threats.

They say that news is something that someone, somewhere, wants kept quiet. Cam Slater doesn’t do quiet and, as a result, he is a polarising, controversial but highly effective journalist who takes no prisoners.

He is fearless in his pursuit of a story.
