My honest politician of the week ...

... is Ed Milliband, the Labour MP and Energy Secretary, who this week admitted, nay openly declared that there was little difference between the Labour Party and the Conservative Party. It was unequivocal. His words were as follows:

"On certain areas, there are no differences between us ... people don't like (politicians) pretending there are big differences when there aren't."

I suspect it was said to try and grab some of the thousands of votes that seem to be moving down South from Labour to Tory. Won't go down particularly well in Scotland and definitely not in Glasgow where some (not many) people have clung onto the hope that the similarities are more superficial than fundamental. Good of Mr Milliband, tipped to lead the Labour Party one day, to clarify the position for us.
