Miliband’s New Year Message Seems Familiar

Seems like Team Miliband have decided to play soundbite bingo for their New Year message:

“We have the chance- all of us together- to fight for a new plan that cuts our deficit responsibly, without threatening our NHS or short changing our children and their future.

But if we could walk through those fires, we surely can meet the problems of our time. We can build a country that works for everyday people. Change is possible if we reach for it. If you are one of the millions of people who think Britain can do a lot better, I am with you. I am with you and this year, together, we can bring about the change we need.”

The only problem is he is yet to reveal what this plan actually is…

The whole message is almost identical to Cameron’s 2010 New Year message on the eve of the last election:

“David Cameron says 2010 should be ‘year for change’. Laying out his priorities, the Tory leader said he aimed “to create a fairer, safer, green country where opportunity is more equal”. He pledged to protect the NHS and strengthen the economy by instigating “responsible economic policies”. 

And did Labour say at the time? According to the BBC, they ‘said the speech lacked specific policy details and was “full of platitudes”.’ Ooops…

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.”
