The Labour party recently reached a stage where the only person in the entire country not giving Ed Miliband advice about how to lead was Ed Miliband himself. That has died down now, especially after another crowd-pleasing conference speech. But this evening Tessa Jowell offered a little bit more in the way of help. She told a fringe after her leader’s speech that the party’s job was now to take today’s policy announcements to the country, saying:
‘I think Ed should just go on travelling around the country, exposing himself to many people.’
Crikey! But didn’t the leader vow to keep his kit firmly on if he became Prime Minister (‘ if I become Prime Minister I won’t take my shirt off in public, I mean it is just not necessary is it?’)?
And why are Labour figures so obsessed with topless Dave anyway? ‘He [Ed] would have a bigger talent,’ Jowell joked, demurely.Tags: Ed Miliband, Tessa Jowell, UK politics
