    Default Ed Miliband

    I've been watching this guy's media performances since he got collected and have concluded that he's a complete plank, totally wooden. British Labour (and trade unions) have gone and picked the wrong brother. This guy won't land a glove on Cameron. I predict at least 15 years of Tory rule.

    Couldn't agree more. the Tories were cheering when EM won, I can see why already. Labour haven't got a hope in the next election with this guy

    The brudder just needs to bide his time, could be after the next election but he'll get in eventually

    You've only realised this now?

    He's a Jewish guy who doesn't believe in God, unmarried with two children, a wooden media performer and selected by the unions.

    Could he be more unelectable?

    Coneron vs Milibland is akin to punch and Judy wooden puppets. I think Milibland will mature over time to sketch out a more traditional labour centre left position. I'm amazed that when the british elected Cameron they thought they were getting a different type of tory. The speed and depth of the cuts in the UK will leave the economy in a spin and will further isolate the working class. History repeating itself...

    I was wondering if there'd be a thread on this - I saw Miliband on PMQs today, and Cameron absolutely filleted him. You can even see in Ed's body language towards the end, that he knows he's a beaten docket.

    Ed Miliband has only one child (and another on the way).

    In any case, I really don't think anyone other than Daily Mail readers - who would never vote Labour no matter who the leader was - could care less about his far from shocking private life.

    I have no idea what his jewishness has to do with anything, disreali was jewish and PM.
    His aetheism wont matter, clegg is an aetheist and so is cable, and Ken Clarke I htink as well, and they are three of the more popular politiocans.
    Unm,arried?
    Meh ted heath was unmarried and did as well as cameron in electrions(from a more difficult position).
    His voice doesnt have that statesman like air , but he will have a public willing to listen qand has time to improve
