Did we get the wrong Milliband?

Sorry Ed, nice guy, but he just doesn’t have it. Charisma is a woolly word, I need to think about what precisely he doesn’t have, but certainly he talks as if he’s got something in his mouth, and he doesn’t pronounce the letter T on the end of words like ‘want’ and ‘right’ as if trying to get a false matey-ness, like Blair used to. Watching for footage of David M I’m struck by how sharp and almost cool he is compared to his teddy bear brother.

So that’s Labour in the doldrums for another four or eight years.

Not that any of iit matters really, with everyone moving to the centre, and the coalition pulling in both directions and ending up in the centre.

They’re all plastic, and they’re all the same. Might as well ignore the circus and get on with life.

Which I think is probably good news.
