So, Ed Miliband was asked for his view on yesterday's public sector strikes and made a complete arse of himself in the interview. This is despite the fact that he was heavily directed and coached by his media handlers. The interview can be seen here on the BBC News site - http://bbc.in/lZV187
I wish that he could be clearer, but I get the impression that he's saying that strikes are wrong while negotiations are ongoing and that the government has been reckless and provocative but I'm not entirely sure.
Damon Green of ITV conducted the interview. His comments on the whole episode can be found here - http://tl.gd/bfensm
I have copied them (below) just in case they disappear from this link ;-)
