Are the Tories right to see Ed Miliband as a joke? On this week’s Spectator cover, Peter Brookes has drawn Miliband as Wallace, with Ed Balls as his ‘Gromit’ sidekick. And on this week’s View from 22 podcast, presented by Fraser Nelson, he and The Telegraph’s Dan Hodges discuss whether people are right to dismiss him as a cartoon figure. Do Labour have any hope of winning the next election with Miliband as their leader?
Meanwhile, the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change will be publishing their latest report next week, which appears to show that there has been no statistically significant rise over the past 16 years. Benny Peiser, of the Global Warming Policy Foundation, and journalist Sunny Hundal, joined Fraser Nelson to talk about what this means for green activists and for climate change sceptics. Could it be that the 3% who don’t believe in global warming are, in fact, right?
Plus, James Forsyth and Isabel Hardman join Sebastian Payne from the Liberal Democrat conference in Glasglow, where they report on the mood of both the party and the party faithful, and the Lib Dem’s optimism regarding the next election.
