Whenever I get depressed at the seemingly endless tunnel without a light that is British politics, whenever I look at the state of the Labour Party and its leader who utterly lacks the courage to have any convictions other than those dictated to him by the Tory party, press, and establishment, and who inspires in me all the confidence of a petrified rabbit caught in headlights.
Whenever I sink into the depths of gloom at the hopelessness of it all, whenever that happens, I remind myself that things, unbelievably, could have actually been worse. Yep, at least David Miliband isn't Leader of the Opposition - something which very nearly happened.
Ed Miliband's faults are many and varied but at least he isn't David Miliband. Not much I know, but it's something.
Labour should be 20 points clear in the polls. But they're not! They're nowhere!
I really don't know where you get this 'Labour are nowhere in the polls' binners. Labour have had a clear and significant lead over the Tories for some considerable time now.
Ed Miliband is by far the most likely person to be next British Prime Minister.
......if only it was just about winning elections.
