Ed Miliband mustn’t let policy be dictated by his holiday reading

Ed Miliband wasn’t exactly on expansive form in Saturday’s Telegraph interview with Charles Moore; his slightly too convenient conversion to aspirational Thatcherism and Yul Brynner like reflexes whilst disposing of a troublesome mosquito providing the highlights.

However, I did spot one fascinating quote that neatly encapsulated everything currently wrong with the Labour leader’s ongoing struggle to put some flesh on the skeletal bones of his political agenda.

Outlining his social vision, Miliband said, “We want a market economy, not a market society”. Okay, it wasn’t the most dramatic of statements, but the line stuck. “Hello”, I thought, “I think we could have one of ‘Ed’s Themes’ developing here.”

Please send me, as a comment to this page, any old material you have for inclusion in The Daily Joke Alert - to help enable us all to have our fancy tickled regularly! Never mind the state it's in as I tidy everything up prior to publication. Don't let good material go to waste - and so much does. In the interests of the environment we should always try to re-cycle everything, especially jokes. You know that makes sense! You may find some historical stuff here, but this does not really matter as humor is fairly timeless.
