The financial times are a changing once again

Ed Miliband was good on Radio 4 this morning and is not how the stupid interviewer or Dan Hodges et al would have you believe, anti-business, but rather recognises that there is no point being pro-business if you are not pro-worker (and vice versa). Miliband is increasingly in keeping with the tradition of John Smith who rightly said, “I am not in the business of seeking the City’s endorsement. Our policies are for society and not for the City. I do not want to make enemies out of them but I am not going round hawking for approval.” Such an approach famously won the unexpected endorsement of the Financial Times, who urged it’s readers to vote Labour in 1992 when no other paper (bar the Daily Mirror) would have the courage to do so. Watch this space.
