A few months ago, Ed Miliband was elected leader of the Labour Party. The mass media were practically telling us who was going to win for ages, probably influencing the result. They said it was basically a two horse race between David Miliband and his brother Ed Miliband. It seemed to be a bit of a surprise to various people that Ed Miliband won instead of David Miliband, but that was all.
My view on all of this is who cares about Ed Miliband? Why should anyone care that the Labour Party has a new leader? Ed Miliband joined the Labour Party after it became new Labour and was heavily involved with the new Labour project. He won the leadership contest largely due to trade union support, but that doesn’t really mean anything.
The policies of Thatcherism are clearly laid out in my last post. Since becoming Labour leader, I don’t think that Ed Miliband has spoken out against any of these policies at all, just made a lot of vague comments that somehow his leadership will mean change.
To sum up, vote Labour for more of the same old shit!
