There was an open goal for Ed Miliband who led on u-turns – Ken Clarke’s sentencing policies and Lansley’s health plans. He missed. Miliband occasionally flashes signs of growing into the job but they don’t last. He has the underlying manner of a diffident schoolboy and Labour will never win another election with him at the helm – let’s hope they keep him. Bercow called on Cameron to withdraw a remark about the NHS, which he didn’t, but I’m afraid I missed it! I’ll try to find some videos later.
