Red Ed Returns

The reaction to the speech from the left should have Labour strategists worried. From The Guardian:

  • Resident Stalinist apologist Seumas Milne: ‘The most radical speech delivered by a Labour leader for a generation’
  • Julian Glover: ‘To be cruel, Tony Benn has got his party back. Red Ed is back…’
  • Martin Kettle: ‘An eloquent restatement of the old-time religion in difficult times’
  • Jackie Ashley: ‘I’m no Tony Blair’

Jackie Ashley is right, this was not the speech of a triple-election winning Labour Party leader..

UPDATE: Blairite Shadow Defence Secretary Jim Murphy not happy:
