It is Obvious

Chris Rick has got altogether too much to say

I’m in Labour

It is obvious: you don’t have to be the best person for a job to get it

A lovely play in 3 acts took place this week.

Eamon Holmes on Sky news had Ed Balls ‘under the knife’.  The conversation was something like:

Ed: we are going to deal with the £75bn deficit the Tories have left us with.

(I have to pause here to get my blood pressure down.)

Eamon: How?

Ed: We are going to be hard on child benefit (waffle for some time)

Eamon: That’s £40mn.  What else?

Ed: We are going to do (something else – I forget what)

Eamon: That’s £500mn.  Where is the other £74.5bn going to come from?

Ed: Waffle…

Then on Tuesday one of the BBC people had Harriet Harmon under the same ‘knife’

BBC: so you have given us £500mn off the deficit.  Where is the other £74bn going to come from?

Harriet: Ahhh.  Errr. (Literally!).  I don’t want to give away everything that is in Ed’s speech tomorrow.  He will give the details.

So on Wednesday what did Ed Miliband say about the deficit…NOTHING.

I wonder…was it less embarrassing to to talk about the omission than anything he might have said about the deficit?

It is obvious: you don’t have to be the best person for a job to get it, just be the least bad
