When you go it to battle with the Prime Minister as Leader of the Opposition on a subject such as rail fare increases, it pays to have your facts straight!
Ed Miliband made much of the recent fare increases on the railways, believing that he had found a chink in Cameron’s defences he duly went on the attack! To his apparent surprise Cameron quoted evidence that it was Ed who was wrong! Ed Miliband got nowhere, simply repeating his assertion that the PM was incorrect!
Who was right? Cameron was the correct one and now it is time for Ed Miliband to apologise for misleading parliament!
I think that this letter from The Rt Hon Baroness Warsi of Dewsbury sums up the position nicely!
Man of Steel! to albatross, in less than a week! Quite a political self immolation?
