Save Ed: Now Mirror Goes For Miliband

Looks like George Mudie was saying what everyone in the Labour Party is thinking yesterday. The Staggers, LabourList, even Owen Jones, have all broken ranks and given Miliband a kicking this week. Now it is the turn of Kevin Maguire to twist the knife in the Mirror:

“The truth is the Labour leader isn’t the decisive, dominant political figure he needs to become if he is to stroll into Downing Street. David Cameron and the Conservatives are there for the taking yet too often Miliband fails to land the killer punches. Labour MP George Mudie’s “hesitant and confused” outburst stings because it rings true. The Tories are regularly allowed to call the shots because Miliband doesn’t know whether he is coming or going…

Maurice Glasman, a Labour peer and Miliband’s onetime guru, famously concluded his former pupil “flickered rather than shone”. That verdict was in January 2012. This is August 2013. Election day is now only 20 months away on 7 May 2015. And Glasman’s assessment remains disturbingly accurate for Labour.”

Guido hopes this won’t become a recurring theme in the run up to conference season. Save Ed…
