"A new generation for change"
It is hard to believe that the Labour Party would already start on the "change, change, change" bandwagon with the above slogan.
We know that they have already reversed position on the necessity of imposing a change to the civil service pension scheme.
It appears that they are moving away gradually from supporting cuts in public spending.
Otherwise from a policy perspective changes are substantially to policies set by the Labour Party themselves.
We also appear to have David Milliband saying that if he cannot be in charge he doesn't want to play.
In a sense this is a symptom of the obsession with the executive and the traditional weakness of parliament.
Personally I believe that there is a lot that can be done simply as a back bench MP and that parliament should be seen as more than a nursery for government. That is why I have been working to strengthen parliament (as the voice of the people).
Parliament is the fundamental democratic institution not the cabinet or shadow cabinet.
