That Man of Destiny Ed Milliband, leader of HM's Loyal Opposition, was interviewed on the radio this morning, offering us a sneak preview of his eagerly awaited New Big Idea for Labour. It's 'fairness'! Sheesh - where does he get them from? Talk about thinking outside the box... Ah, but it's fairness that doesn't cost anything, 'cos there's no money, on account of that nice Gordon Brown having spent it all. Excuse my lapse into the demotic there - it's infectious. Milliband never misses an opportunity for showing off his immaculately honed, down-with-the-kids glottal stop - sorry, glo'al stop - or his man-of-the-people 'gonna', as in 'It's gonna be to'ally fair.' Actually Ed, it's gonna be a to'al disaster, as long as you're in charge. David Cameron must be pinching himself, unable to believe his luck.
