The speech Ed Miliband has just given to the Policy Network wasn’t a speech, it was a brief for a speech.
An intern, a 27-year-old policy poppet would have written a series of notes for the Leader:
We need to support a culture of long-termism. How do we say that in human?
It’s about people. People being the most important asset. Is there a way of saying that that isn’t fifty years old?
We need to celebrate business. Obviously we can’t just say that.
