Oh dear. Lucy Powell has managed to mess up yet another media appearance. Appearing on Radio 5 Live, Powell attempted to justify Ed Miliband’s decision to commission an 8ft 6in stone with Labour’s election promises inscribed.
When the presenter suggested that a stone wouldn’t make voters believe in a politician’s promises, Powell came out with a rather off-message reply:
‘I don’t think anyone is suggesting that the fact that he’s carved them in stone means he’s absolutely not going to break them or anything like that’
Mr S suggests Labour refrain from putting Powell up for any more media appearances ahead of Thursday.
