Miliband’s contrasts

with one comment

Like a two headed coin

Kevin Maguire tries to write warmly of South Shields MP and Foreign Secretary David Miliband today, but then goes and gives the game away by suggesting that he needs to meet 40m people personally to have any chance of being liked. I know where you are coming from Kevin (and we know you’ve shared a pint or two with the “Miliblogger”) as soon as you put a camera and a microphone in front of him the geek takes over and he talks all ‘policy wonk’. Seriously, he’s like a coin with two heads.

At a grassroots personal level he really is an easy bloke to get along with, but at policy level he’s way over everyone’s head! Letters from a Tory isn’t too impressed either after the burning down of a Danish Embassy, presumably as a result of those cartoons, and the killing of Tibetans by the Chinese, he just about calls for Miliband’s head on a plate.

MaCavaty? Surely not!

  1. By the by was Milliband (Marxist academic father) selected locally by horny handed workers, or was he parachuted in by NuLabour?
