Race winner Ed Miliband launched himself into his new job with a heartfelt and stirring speech promising help for those who most need it and vowing to protect Labour's traditional supporters, the Middle Classes. Oh hang on, I seem to have made a typo there, I'll just go and check my sources...
...no, that's actually what Miliband said ""My aim is to show that our party is on the side of the squeezed middle in our country and everyone who has worked hard and wants to get on." I suppose this must come as a bit of a kick in the teeth if you are a working class Labour voter, but then again, after years of Bliar and Brown they must be well used to a knife in the back by now.
Miliband spread a little salt in the wounds of the working classes by saying "We must never again lose touch with the mainstream of our country." Well Ed, I think the Labour party managed that quite some time ago, but at least it is decent of you to admit where the party sees itself and whose interests it is defending, although it is a little strange to see the red flag flying from the Tory mast.
