Following Blairs criticism of Brown and the direction of the labour party Ed Miliband hit back!
NHS reforms, tuition fees and the pension reforms – Ed has been accused of ‘jumping on the band wagon’ and simply opposing instead of informing.

Blair was worried about the loss of the ‘labour driving rhythm’ in which he ‘urged Ed Miliband not to take Labour to the left and become simply a “party of protest”.

On the BBC’s Andrew Marr show Ed Miliband said, “One of the things we have to do is run from the centre. I’m leading the Labour Party, leading it in the interests of the country.”

As well as this he stated that there would be no cabinet reshuffle immediately after labour MPs backed plans to scrap the election system to the shadow cabinet which is currently every two years.

He added: “The reason I did that is I believe it’s important our party speaks outward to the country and doesn’t look inwards.

Will the labour party under Ed be able to regain the centre ground of politics and win back the trust of the electorate? We’ll just have to wait and see!
