Ed has Phil’s problem

At first it was Phil Goff that was following the lead of Ed Miliband, but now it is Ed who is following Phil, using the same lines and excuses:

Ed Miliband, the Labour leader, has rejected claims that he might be “handicapped” by his appearance, insisting he is the right man to lead Labour to success at the next general election.

Mr Miliband has faced growing criticism over his leadership in recent weeks, with a series of senior party figures expressing concern that he is failing to connect with voters.

But the Labour leader dismissed the attacks as “noises off” and declared that he had a “very strong inner belief” that he would steer the party back to power.

His comments came as recent poll results put his personal ratings below those of both David Cameron and Nick Clegg.

Even his brother, David Miliband, whom he defeated in the 2010 Labour leadership contest, has complained that “everyone” in the party feels “very frustrated” at the moment.

Labour MPs are growing increasingly anxious about Mr Miliband’s poor performances in the House of Commons.

I wonder if Ed has thought about dying his hair?

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.
