Renationalisation. It is the rarest of policies, enjoying broad cross-voter support, whilst making economic sense. It works in Europe; it will save Britain money and ensure higher quality rail services. It's not a bold policy Ed, it should be obvious - promise to renationalise in 2015.
Whenever I see Ed Miliband trying to pretend he's a human, I'm always reminded of a particular scene in Mark Tavener's criminally underrated sitcom Absolute Power in which the oily sultan of spin Charles Prentiss (not so much played by as written for Stephen Fry) is sizing up dowdy Tory shadow minister Joanne Standing (basically a pilot version of The Thick of It's Nicola Murray).
In general, unionised workers are better off than non-unionised. Even in Britain, home to the toughest anti-union legislation in Western Europe, unions make a difference; strong unions make a bigger one.
I attended the Inclusive Prosperity Conference at the Science Museum this week which was chaired by Ed Balls MP and the keynote speaker was Ed Miliband... Mr. Miliband warned that he won't always agree with us but my advice to him is to listen and think until his head hurts.
The Germans have bigger and better industry and produce quality goods from pharmaceuticals to lignite. In England, the people that could be achieving so much in these kinds of industry are pissing around at university and messing up the job market for serious graduates.
Do you want my alternative, semi-serious take on Ed Miliband's problems, including his 'dead hand', David Cameron's Not So Cool Britannia party and George Osborne's fear of arithmetic? Here's the political week in 60 seconds.
While Mr. Cameron may not travel by train much these days, he should take heed of Truman's example, and that of William Gladstone, whose Midlothian Campaign was wildly successful.
Rather than attempting to deceive the public, or try his hand at populist, personality politics what Ed Miliband must do is work with what he has. His principles, should he stick to them can be vote winners: Justice and a will to break down the ever growing social divides of inequality are more than just admirable; they are electable.
Technology. It has become so commonplace in every aspect of our lives that most of us now take it for granted. It is unsurprising then that the IT skills gap which is plaguing the UK has found its way into Parliamentary discussion, with Ed Miliband stating the IT industry is being 'let down' by the current skills shortage.
Foxes are cute, fox cubs particularly cute, it's understandable that they get a lot of attention and attract compassion. But that compassion should be encouraged for all of our natural world, and all of our human world. The potential is there in all of us, but at the moment our political rhetoric and policies are all discouraging, repressing that.
Where does Ed Miliband sit, then, in comparison with other recent leaders of the opposition? On some measures, the leader with the most similar figures is Michael Howard. Ed Miliband scores better than William Hague and Iain Duncan Smith, but this is hardly comforting news.
You may not agree with Jackson's choice of President, but the point is that in this age of infotainment - that hybrid of news and showbiz that has largely taken over the United States and is gaining hold here, too - it's important that we wake up and stay awake.
With Labour joining the Coalition in supporting the propagation of their depressing, victimising message, will you consider the alternative message being offered by the Greens?
What are the alternatives for dissatisfied Lib Lefties who want to express their politics through party membership? They could rejoin the ghost of the SDP, no really they still exist, or choose principled powerlessness again, and join the authoritarian Greens. Perhaps the hardest to stomach would be joining Labour.
Do you want my alternative, semi-serious take on the latest Ed Miliband leadership 'crisis', Jeremy Paxman's retirement, Boris Johnson's birthday and Tony Blair's bizarre intervention on Iraq? All while doing keepy-uppy in honour of our (awful) England team in Brazil? Here's the political week in 60 seconds.
Through these and other policies we have built a resilient Wales, a Wales with good and improving employment rates and skills levels. People and communities are ready to thrive. But for this to really happen, we need a Labour Government in Westminster. A Government that won't lock people out of the economic recovery, but allow everyone to experience the benefits of an economic uplift.
