I just can’t believe how self-indulgent and transparent Miliband and his supporters in Labour HQ are being with their latest campaign. The Labour Party have sent party members an email asking them to sign up to and invite their friends to join ‘Ed’s Pledge’. Ed’s pledge is as follows:
” I’ll be pushing for clear action to get a global climate deal that’s ambitious, effective and fair. This means ambitious cuts in greenhouse gas emissions, keeping countries to their word and supporting poorer countries in adapting to climate change. ”
What are people signing up for? Ed Miliband to keep his word? The whole thing stinks of shameless self-promotion.
Not only have they chosen to launch a climate change campaign on the same morning as New Earth Deal, they have also decided to try and position Miliband as the champion of the grass-roots Copenhagen campaign. This ‘campaign’ is nothing but a shameless attempt to profile Ed Miliband and will piss off a load of people who have been building towards Copenhagen for months.
