Mistake yes, but not the whole story

Ed Milliplonker has stood up in his speech today and attacked the decision to go to war in Iraq. Fair enough I suppose, though his previous voting record in "They work for you" isn't too impressive.

 Voting record (from PublicWhip)

How Edward Miliband voted on key issues since 2001:
Voted very strongly for Labour's anti-terrorism laws.
Voted very strongly for more EU integration.
Voted a mixture of for and against a transparent Parliament.
Voted moderately against greater autonomy for schools.
Voted moderately for replacing Trident.
Voted very strongly for introducing a smoking ban.
Voted very strongly for a stricter asylum system.
Voted very strongly against an investigation into the Iraq war.
Voted very strongly for equal gay rights.
Voted very strongly for allowing ministers to intervene in inquests.
Voted a mixture of for and against laws to stop climate change.
Voted very strongly for introducing ID cards.
Voted for removing hereditary peers from the House of Lords.
Voted very strongly for a wholly elected House of Lords.
Ed Miliband has said Labour "needs to change" after its election defeat, in his first big speech as party leader.
He praised the party's achievements but said they had to face "painful truths" - such as the Iraq war being "wrong".
In an hour-long speech he also said the party failed to listen to voters' concerns on immigration.
Mr Miliband, who paid tribute to "extraordinary" brother David, said the "new generation" in Labour were now "the optimists" in British politics.
In a more personal part of the speech he told how his parents' experience as refugees fleeing the Nazis shaped his values.
The former energy secretary, 40, was named Labour leader on Saturday having won the ballot of MPs, party members and trade unionists by just 1%.
You can see just what a tight arsed little hypocrite he is just by checking out his record, there's also the fact that he hasn't had a real job in his life to consider too, it's all been politically based in journalism and education. So he's playing to the gallery really, but these days the gallery consists of bloggers too and we can fact check him down to his roots, still I doubt many of the old guard of the Labour left will be giving what he says much scrutiny. Too busy lapping up the rhetoric and hoping for a return of the good old days of bringing the country to its knees whilst selling out to the old Soviet Union EU, more money for bribes expenses too. No-one seems to have pulled him on the fact that he was the author of the 2010 election manifesto and so has a hell of a lot to answer for on their current circumstances.
So it's all change for Labour as the Milliplonker E tries to salvage something from the ruins of Labours defeat not quite a win though judging from his past voting record, he and Cam the man are not so different at all, just Blair mk2's, all style, no substance and both committed to handing us over to the EU.
