Kinnock Snipes at Miliband

Red Prince Stephen Kinnock has used a 4,300 word interview with Mehdi Hasan to launch a number of wide-ranging criticisms of Ed Miliband. Labour’s candidate in Aberavon, who amusingly dodges a question on whether he wants to be PM, condemns the current Labour leadership’s relationship with business:

“I’m not sure the Labour Party sees that the tectonic plates are shifting… there is a potential new alliance with business that can be forged but it doesn’t start with going in and hectoring business about all the things they’re doing wrong. If we go in with [a] positive approach, we will get much more traction with the business community. I accept that we are not where we should be. We are missing a trick.”

Kinnock Jnr concedes his party won’t win outright:

“We, of course, will be pushing to try and secure a Labour government and it would be fantastic if we had the ability to do that as the Labour Party alone but I think realistically we must now be prepared for coalition.”

Before going after Team Ed’s strategy:

“Forget about going through the media. Get out there! I’d like to see Ed doing more of that. He needs to get out and talk to people – talk to our members, talk to our voters and let’s get everybody on the same page and fired up for the election next year. Of course that was something my dad was brilliant at.”

That’ll go down well in Norman Shaw North…

Quote of the Day

Tory MP Nick Boles says what everyone thinks…

“There is a timidity and lack of ambition about Mrs May’s Government which means it constantly disappoints. Time to raise your game, Prime Minister.”
