Miliband on education

leave a comment »

David at Davos

An interesting video featuring the Foreign Secretary and South Shields MP David Miliband talking about the rights to universal primary education for children worldwide. A laudable aim, but the video is more interesting as an illustration of other things (a) Miliband’s desire to embrace modern technology by talking to a webcam enabled laptop, (b) his usual wooden performance which detracts from the important message, and (c) the media huddle finding someone more interesting behind him!

I cannot fault him for trying to espouse his sensible education message in relation to oversees development, but a quiet corner, an empty office, or hotel room, might have made a world of difference to the effectiveness of his delivery.
