I have to say I was completely underwhelmed by Ed Miliband’s Labour Party Conference speech on Merseyside.
What was I expecting? Well, my first editor always repeated over and over again: “The devil is in the detail.”
Rhetoric is not what this country needs now. Job creation and a buoyant economy are at the forefront of people’s minds.
Only strong policies that deliver results will give him the prime ministerial air he desperately seeks.
Heather Stewart hit the nail on the head in her Guardian piece on big business, entitled: “End fast-buck culture? First, Miliband needs a revolution in business values”
She pointed out that Britain’s business model needed to be re-worked and “Miliband will need to translate his rhetoric into a detailed policy programme”.
