Ed Miliband, who recently won the Labour leadership race by 1%, made a speech at the Labour conference outlining where he wants his party to go, basically saying how he believes New Labour was good but they need to move past that.
I must say my prejudges’ about this guy have somewhat dissipated recently, he criticises the people who believed boom with no bust, but he sympathises with those left angry in the public,
He told reporters on Monday: "New Labour was right for its time and there are many aspects of New Labour that we will retain, like the idea that we appeal to all sections of society, that we are for wealth creation as well the distribution of wealth.
"But it came to be associated with a particular style and nature of politics and actually it got stuck in its old certainties itself and I will be saying that in a speech on Tuesday and I will be saying more about my vision of where we go as a party then."
So I guess we’ll be waiting to hear about these new visions. Although his spokeswoman said he would not make any more decisions about the party’s future until Wednesday, I’ll keep you updated J
David is taking a strong stand behind his brother, supporting him the whole way… although there are rumors he may resign..
