Frank Dobson Slams Useless Team Ed and ShadCab

Outgoing Labour MP and former cabinet minister Frank Dobson has slammed Miliband’s inner-circle and the Shadow Cabinet. Firstly he agreed they were all useless,  before changing tone:

dobson“Useless isn’t the right word. They’re … not of sufficient quality and clarity.” He is not impressed with much of the shadow cabinet, either. Calling for a clearer message, he says: “It would be considerably assisted if all the rest of the shadow ministers were knocking lumps off opposite numbers. You need to boil things down to a few simple, short, sharp concepts and say them time and time and time again. It’s no good thinking you can convince the public with a lecture that you might deliver to some postgraduate thing at All Souls.”

Whichever wonkish academic could Frank be thinking about?

Quote of the Day

Ed Miliband goes studs in on Theresa May:

“When PM says “nothing has changed” she is lying. If she lies about this what else?”
