Miliband might regret ruling out a referendum

January 23rd, 2013

He should have left himself with some wiggle-room

Having watched the exchange several times I think that EdM might not have been planning to make such a commitment at this stage.

It’s certainly been seen as a slip – and not only by those who’ve been hailing the PM’s speech.

EdM should have had a form of words that got over his message but left some room to change his mind as events develop. He’s got enough smart people advising him and this looks like a mistake.
