Why do the Milibands sound so much like Tony Blair? Everything they say is qualified by "I think that's the right thing to do" (Ed at 0:29), and "There are legitimate differences to be had" (Dave at 4:50).
Anyway, nice to know that we've given up on the War on Terror. Now, I wonder whether we'll be able to convince the USA that it's a wrong policy?!
Miliband is a weathervane. The fact that he has done, to use his famous phrase, a vaulting 180 degree u turn on this issue is because he can see the US foreign policy changing.
That is at least something to be optimistic about, but we are probably only one terrorist incident on US soil away from him deciding the War On Terror wasn't such a bad idea after all.
Utterly, utterly cynical.
