Now Even the Nerds Turn On Ed Top Prof Warns Miliband Has “Failed to Perform”

If there was one voting block Ed Miliband thought he could rely on, it would be his fellow nerds, yet a four-year academic study granted access to Ed Miliband’s inner circle today concludes he has “failed to perform as a leader”.

Professor John Gaffney’s research project carried out interviews with “well-known and high profile” Labour figures including advisers, speechwriters and spinners, finding “Miliband as a leader has simply not been inspiring enough to attract supporters”.

The study claims Miliband “fails to inspire his followers because he is not getting the narrative of leadership right,” that “many are unclear as to Miliband’s identity,” and warns “Labour’s chance is slipping away”.

Prof. Gaffney says “Ed Miliband must make peace with New Labour to win in 2015”, arguing that if he fails to “reconcile” and “unify”“the Labour Party is… in serious trouble”. Also known as “stating the bleedin’ obvious” from the University of Aston.

Quote of the Day

Lucy Allan explains her positive comments about the Brexit Party…

“If EU elections are held, Leave supporting voters will want to vote for Leave supporting candidates… Usual party loyalties will be eclipsed by the Leave v Remain divide. It’s good to see strong candidates in the Leave camp. However, I sincerely hope we leave the EU before these elections are held so that we can move on and not waste time and money on unnecessary EU elections.”
