red-edYou’d think that Labour would have learned its lesson having a leader whose surname was a handy nearly anagram of liar and another where “…is a moron” naturally follows his first. So if f you must choose a new leader, why plump for someone whose first name rhymes with red?

Miliband major wouldn’t have been much better. I’m sure he would have been Rabid David in the letters page of the Daily Mail before the week was out.

As for Andy Burnham, I think Burnham’s Bonfire of Sanity would work quite well for the Express and the Mail, although not a headline you could overuse too much. And I don’t need to elaborate on Ed Balls.

Which is why Diane Abbot was the only sane choice for me, but they just don’t get it, do they?

    I have always voted Labour. Though Ed Miliband is intelligent and principled, he doesn’t yet seem to have the presence and the charisma that one expects to discern in an effective modern day leader. Sadly, I think they have elected the wrong Miliband. I hope I’m wrong.

    I was writing tongue in cheek, of course, but ti does sadden me the way the media set out to blacken a man’s name through innuendo. Whether he is the right man for the job, time will tell, but he at least he has a few years to establish himself before an election.
