While there have been calls for Labour to bring back Mandy, don’t forget that other controversial blast from the past Alastair Campbell. Well he is not going to let you anyway. Campbell is the latest Labour figure to offer their, ever so welcome, two-cents on where Miliband and his message are going wrong:
“…the very good record of the last Labour government has been blunted if not lost as a political weapon. Steve Richards is absolutely right to be arguing in the FT today that Labour must be more robust in defending the record… Labour have played into Tory hands on this, and there needs to be an admission of that, so that even at this late stage, a proper debate and a proper reckoning of the record can be had.”
Thanks for your input, Alastair.
