Local Labour leader lays into Ed Milliband.................

Local labour big-wigs haves wasted on time in getting their knives into Ed Milliband

Cllr Paul Cotterill, the Labour Group leader on West Lancashire Borough Council, offers the following analysis of the new Labour leader:

I think Ed M’s come over as a bit of triangulating turd, if I’m honest, and if such a thing exists.

His campaign has been driven by the ‘values’ that I think he thinks people want to see in his campaign and potential leadership. This is best reflected in the more stupid rightwing view is that he is ‘tacking left’.

He’s not tacked left in any meaningful way. He’s let it be known that he might be tacking left, because that’s where he thinks there’s a pool of vote from people who don’t want David or Ed Balls, and don’t take Diane Abbott or Andy Burnham seriously.

Ed Miliband, you don’t fool me. You’re a nice enough bloke, but you’re a charlatan.

Oh, and if you persist in repeating yourself despite the fact I have addressed your point I may get bored and reject your comment.
