Red on Ed: Mili Faces Labour Revolt

20140325-090623.jpg

If Ed Miliband keeps his word on his promise to fire anyone who briefs against the party then a full scale shadow cabinet reshuffle is in store today.

Traitors to the revolution Jon Cruddas and Stella Creasy must be first in line for telling the New Statesman:

The old model of politics where progress depended upon centralising the capacity to act – whether in the market or by top down state intervention – no longer works.”

The Telegraph meanwhile has received a hostile anonymous negative briefing from within the party stirring up talk of revolt:

Several Labour MPs are this week planning to defy Mr Miliband’s orders by voting against the Coalition’s plans for a cap on welfare spending. Other party figures have demanded Mr Miliband do more to distance Labour from the public sector and appeal more to private sector workers.

And that’s not to mention the open warfare reported in the Times between manifesto review chief Cruddas and election campaign boss wee Dougie Alexander over the extent that Labour should commit to Whitehall reform. Or the Labour MPs warning Miliband to “change tune” in the FT. Let alone the Sun, who “Labour insiders” have briefed that: “Some 25 Labour backbenchers are threatening to go against their leader’s wishes in a key Commons vote on the welfare cap.

Last year Ed warned that “he will not tolerate any of that kind of behaviour. If anybody is found briefing against anybody, you are out.” He’s going to have to sniff out the traitors…
