At last it’s here! Ed Miliband’s election address has hit the doormats of Doncaster this week. It’s a riveting read, though it seems the errant local MP has not managed to find any ‘real’ people to endorse him, instead picking Labour Party organisers to masquerade as ordinary local people:
That would be local party member Cynthia Bunting who helps organise and promote fundraisers for Ed in the constituency.
That would Tony Sockett who just happened to be a Labour councillor in Doncaster.
That would be local party supporter Adam Davey. Incidentally Davey works for private sector outsourcing giants Serco, who Ed has directly attacked in the past, claiming last year: “too often large public-sector bureaucracies have been replaced with a large private-sector bureaucracy. A Serco-G4S state can be just as flawed as the centralised state”.
This must be what Labour meant when they promised “less fear and more honesty” in this campaign…
