Bullshit Bingo- Ed Miliband’s bargain basement speech

Here’s a lovely trashing of Ed Miliband’s conference speech last week. It’s by the elegantly uptight Martin Shovel and if you haven’t visited his blog yet.  Please do, it’s really rather good.  Here’s his view.

Ed Miliband’s bargain basement speech.

I thought Ed’s speech was like the worst ever bullshit bingo entrant. Someone in the crowd would have won the prize after 10 seconds.

As I suggested here a few years ago, there’s a really simple way to make sure that you don’t sound like an accountant next time you get up to speak- Ask someone for help- don’t just think it doesn’t matter.

Who does Ed have these days?

He should ring Martin.
