I have been conspicuously quiet of late observing the fast paced workings of the Con-Dem [my coined phrase] Coalition Govt as if there’s no tomorrow.
Perhaps there isn’t given Ed’s positioning. But why am I so enthused about Ed Miliband given that I am Independent?
Simply because he does not appear to contraband like his elder brother who did harbour prime ministerial ambitions despite his constant denials holding a banana as his witness. Why, otherwise, would David think of relinquishing the cushy Westminster Village outside which either brother has not served?
So what do I expect of Ed?
In addition to accepting, including and implementing, if not all, some of my last manifesto, I expect him to be nationally contrite about the increased inequalities under 13 years of New Labour, about the New Labour’s Words of Mass Deception [WMDs] both in 1997 Manifesto and in the House of Parliament especially about Iraq & Afghanistan. I want him to come clean and condemn the excesses of New Labour and especially about them being economic or frugal with the truth about the economic mis-management of the UK PLC.
I want him to be humble and listen to the heart of Britain in introducing an English referendum [i] to select the new electoral system that the electorate decide upon and [ii] to select a acceptable political governance for England.

What is my manifesto, you ask?
Where do I stand on public services cuts, Housing Development in Milton Keynes?
Finally, I expect him to develop an ability to introspect and correct his deviations from the promised path of non-alliance with any lobbies including the corrosive Jewish Lobby we know about.
Vote judiciously. Conservative Friends of Israel Supporting Israel and Promoting Conservatism You might choose the next Govt but will be controlled by others such as this powerful lobby group that also controls Obama Camp. Think.

3rd November 1994 was my first ever Psychometric Test (conducted by Thomas International Management Europe Ltd.) reveals thus: “ Mr Vyas is positive and persuasive by nature, an integrative leader who has genuine interest in other people. Being of a friendly nature he gains confidence and respect of others as a result of his poised manner and amiable approach. Group activities both in and out of work are important factors to him, as is meeting new and interesting people. Being positive & inquisitive by nature, Mr Vyas is fairly self-assured & venturesome in majority of his dealings. He takes responsibility seriously. He likes to be given freedom to act & enjoys a challenge. Mr Vyas is a fair listener, kind, accommodating & relaxed in approach. There is a tendency to be careful in his dealings & is likely to be fairly well disciplined. He needs to belong to a team and yet exert independent influence upon it and organise it to act. At work he needs to be in contact with a variety of people and needs to be helpful and provide a service both in terms of providing advice and solutions to problems. He has ability to be thorough and deliberate once the objectives to be achieved are clear. The job should include authority to act independently and could include disciplining others should the occasion arise.
