Miliband manages a tight-knit response to Downing Street’s woolly thinking:
“David Cameron yesterday described the rise in prices at British Gas as “disappointing”. Today Downing Street tells people to consider wearing jumpers to keep warm. Their crime policy used to be ‘hug a hoodie’. Now their energy policy appears to be ‘wear a hoodie’. These responses to the energy price rises show how little Mr Cameron and his government stand up for the interests of hard working people.”
He’s not spinning a yarn with this one. Stealing “hardworking people” will really needle Dave.
Guido is reminded of Jimmy Carter’s address to the nation on energy, in which the then President infamously wore a jumper.
It was the end of his limited credibility…
