Ed Miliband now reminds me of the Democrats in USA when they make campaign statements.They always talk of fighting for the middle class.Is this the term now for the working class I.E those in regular long term work?There is lots of underclass poverty in USA
but you and I weve been through that and this is not our fate.
So let us so let us not talk falsely now.

I've had a current account with Yorkshire Bank for over 40 years. Haven't been overdrawn for over 10 years and got a £1500 overdraft. In december the wife rang me up to say the card had been refused in asdas - very embarassing. When I rang to query this with the bank it turns out I had gone £1200 overdrawn and unknown to me the bank had reduced my overdraft to £600 because I hadn't used the upper limit. No apologies or nothing. Looking round now at deals and went into the local Halifax last week to talk to someone. The guy wasn't interested and just directed me to all their brochures on display and told to help myself. Whats wrong with these people. Anybody got any advice on a reliable current account?

I've never had any problem with First Direct, have recommended them to quite a few people over the years.

Ed Miliband has been struggling to come up with ideas on how to tempt back all those voters who have deserted the Labour Party in the last decade.  He's also decidedly unhappy that the Tories are hogging the press with negative publicity.  To deal with both in one go, he's decided that the best option for reclaiming people like me is to promise to manage the public sector with the same conviction as Maggie Thatcher.  Super Ed to the rescue!

To say that Ed Miliband is struggling is an understatement in my book. I and I'm sure a majority of people in this country just don't see him as a future Prime Minister.

Through reasons unknown to me he just doesn't appear able to get his message over.

Through reasons unknown to me he just doesn't appear able to get his message over.

I think there's a fundamental failing in his approach to leading the party to power.  He seems to be asking his electoral strategy people to decide what's important to the voters rather than asking what's important to the people who are likely to vote Labour.  If you ask the former then you're entirely at the mercy of getting answers that'll annoy the marginals while those who might like the policy will ignore it because it's Labour.  They don't seem to want to ask the latter, not sure if that's because he's asking a disconnected group of London based PPE drones or if he really thinks he can take votes away from the Tories.

 

I don't think either main party have really grasped that the only reason there's a Tory PM now is that the population as a whole disliked him less than Gordon Brown and the Lib Dems were desperate to jump into bed with anyone.  No party "won" the last election, it's just that the Tories lost by a bit less.
