Mandy on Miliband

Nothing like a bit of Mandy to liven things up and the master of the dark arts had luke-warm words for Ed on the Today programme earlier. Despite saying that he was “doing well”, there were criticisms too:

“…he’s struggling with two things. He’s trying to oppose the Government on the economy… at exactly the same time, he’s struggling to invent a new left-of-centre political paradigm… It’s a rather unenviable job…”

Well that’s almost better than saying nothing, and more than he could manage at Davos yesterday. CityAM reports:

Sir Martin [Sorrell] mentioned that some commentators haven’t been so kind about Mandy’s current party leader Ed Miliband. “Have they?” said the dark prince nonchalantly. “I’ve been travelling.” Barclays chairman Marcus Agius doubled over with laughter.

Ed will be lecturing this lot about his new capitalism this week. Guido is sure they are going take him very, very seriously…

Quote of the Day

Trevor Kavanagh’s analysis of the Brexit process…

“Thanks to Mrs May and her useless Chancellor Phil Hammond, this will not come without pain. But we escape with imagination and true British grit or we will be boiled alive.

It means on this centenary Remembrance of our struggle against tyranny, we risk ceding non-military victory in Europe to the undemocratic forces of an unaccountable totalitarian regime.”
