The case of the Reverend Paul Flowers, who until today was the CEO of the Co-Op bank, was aired at PM's Question Time. The PM took full advantage of the embarrassment of the useless Labour front bench but it was the response that was interesting.
Ed Miliband exploded with a string of accusations that the PM either could not defend or chose not to. Miliband exposed the 'dodgy' funding behind the Conservative party and personally I believe that someone should now challenge his accusations.
We all know that the Labour leadership cannot be trusted with finance. They proved it over a thirteen year period of banking disaster. Ed Balls and Ed Miliband cannot be trusted to buy sweets from a corner shop. They don't even trust each other! However what about the Tories who are the friends of big business?
Surely someone (UKIP?) should take up the response from Ed Miliband and examine it? If Ed Miliband, in his desperation to respond to Cameron's accusation, exposed the dodgy aspects of Tory funding. then surely someone should be following up?
Ed Miliband is politically a child! He inadvertently gave away the game of 'modernization' trying to be smart when confronting David Cameron not too long ago. If you watch his lips move then he exposes his masters continually. He is actually a political liability but so far UKIP are trying to win support at ground level. Someone, somewhere should be looking at the under belly of these political parties.
This week I met a few UKIP members over a pint and I began to realize the extent of the problem. In our local area we have a leader who is desperately trying to garner support. His heart is in the right place but nobody is willing to step forward and do the dirty work on the doorsteps which might bring results.
I am one of those because at my age and with the health problems that accumulate over years I have to be sensible. I am unwilling to commit my remaining years to a project which requires commitment and energy. Real politics requires dedication, commitment and ambition. I feel bad because I am too old to do this ground work. I must rethink how I can help.
