Mr S wandered down to Ed Miliband’s big business speech at the ‘Inclusive Prosperity’ conference at the Science Museum today, and it has to be said: it was all a bit weird.
While the space age theme of the ‘breakout’ coffee room was rather funky, it was so dark that you could not actually see anyone’s face or work out who you are talking to. The whole thing had the feel of a night club—all be it one hosting a geek-themed fetish evening—about it.
Perhaps this is how the Labour leader likes to interact with big business – cloaking it in darkness so he can pretend it is not there.
