Politicians have to make tough decisions, and then they have to stand by them, right or wrong as they may be. A U-Turn with such high stakes shows nothing but a complete lack of confidence and pedigree, especially in the manner conducted by Harman, who refuses to apologise for a War that she not only Voted for, but Argued for and yet claps when the party drifts from 'we were right' to 'the war in Iraq was wrong', like a sheep following the herd, clap clap clap it will all go away.
The stoney faced refusal to clap from David Miliband during his own brothers speech, shows that he stands by the decision, that he is willing to accept the criticism for that decision even in the hard face of adversity from his own Labour Colleagues. A man with balls.
Ed Miliband, in my opinion, lacks a certain air of authority, professionalism and enthusiasm that his brother has always shown. His voice is not only annoying, but the words he seems to reel off do not sound convincing, or inspiring, and we all know he played the 'war in Iraq' card purely for self preservation, nothing more. On Camera he looks little more than a rabbit in the headlights, he has no presence whatsoever. I'm sure many will disagree.
Harman's nauseating clap, has made me quite mad, and if i had been David Miliband, I probably would have spat in her face. If she thinks the public so easily forgive and forget, she has another thing coming. Being fickle doesn't work in politics, jumping ship when it suits.
