Former Labour No.10 man Darren Murphy took to Twitter moments after Ed’s Today programme performance to declare, though “painful to say it”, that the interview had “more than a touch of the Iain Duncan Smith about it”. Like many Blairites he is off making money away from frontline politics, Murphy remains well connected in the party. Funnily enough the tweet soon disappeared, and was replaced with this:
All together now: The Leader is good. The Leader is great.
