Labour led their campaign with shallow, soundbite-driven focus-group rhetoric, whilst the Conservatives concentrated on reducing the deficit and making tough decisions. Labour has an identity crisis, and a mere change of leadership may not do the trick
As Special Adviser to Brown (1997-2002), an MP from 2005, a minister from 2006 and a Cabinet minister from 2007, Ed Miliband’s hand is well and truly dipped in the blood of the financial catastrophe Labour presided over. Expect a return to old ways if Labour wins on Thursday
If Labour win the election, the world’s media will be itching to snap a bacon sandwich moment of Ed Miliband next to the President of the United States, doing considerable damage to our reputation. Ed just isn't prime ministerial material, and we all know it
David Cameron is the most impressive of all of the party leaders and the PM’s supporters boast that his popularity ratings are comfortably ahead of his party’s. But Jim Callaghan was much more popular than Margaret Thatcher when she defeated him in the 1979 general election. That's food for thought
Sheer panic has gripped Labour, as their almost incomprehensibly daft electoral "strategy" suggests. Let's indeed hope that Miliband continues to be as incompetent as an electoral strategist as he was as a minister
It has been a long standing feature of Labour failure not to understand that public services have to be paid for. If you bankrupt the wider economy you bankrupt the NHS. Cameron easily defeated Miliband today, and he should keep banging the same drum to election day
Labour hates England. Miliband and company show their disdain by their opposition to devolution of power to the English. In some cases, Labour even goes so far as to disrespect the English flag. Should the English respect Labour?
Ed Miliband is said to be smart, if nothing else. How do we explain his persistent refusal to engage in any serious way at all with the great issues of our time? What does it say about him as a person, let alone as a potential leader?
Swap the biblical bread for a bacon sandwich, and switch Judas for Jason Cowley, editor of The New Statesman, and many people will see why this week sealed the fate of Labour’s lacklustre leader. But Ed Miliband doesn't deserve the analogy. He's a walking disaster
Labour is a bad joke. Miliband’s speech summed it all up. Please don’t mention the deficit. Pease, please don’t mention immigration. The EU is just fine, and those open borders have to be accepted. Can we let them into power?
