At last! Ed Miliband must be delighted now that he can move on. The trouble is that Labour should not be back in power until he is a very old man. I actually think the coalition, (short of my ideal of Scottish independence), is doing not too badly from the point of view that the LibDums are taking the edge off the Tories most radical plans and what is left is certainly less big business and more people orientated. Which of course, is what it should be, unless they are, as we all suspect, being played by big business and the banks, the banks being, you know who, those people I get into a row for mentioning too often, not that, that, will stop me.
