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.
For ease of reference see my past entries:
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.
