If Mr Miliband becomes the Prime Minister he says, in contrast to Mr Cameron, his administration will not seek to spend its first two years seeking to renegotiate Britain's relationship with Europe and then submitting the outcome of any such renegotiation to a defining referendum in 2017.
It is always dangerous to draw direct political parallels of course and Karl Marx himself recognised this when he said that history does indeed repeat itself; the first time as tragedy, the second time as farce. This time maybe we have to say that history is again repeating itself; this time as Farage.
It was quite a proud accolade for me when I was described as being 'insanely left-wing'. Because it's a good thing to be left-wing, isn't it? It means that you care about other people being equal and you don't want to shoot immigrants or privatize everything including human souls...
The threat UKIP poses to a Conservative victory in 2015 is widely recognised, less so the damage it could cause Labour. If recent revelations regarding UKIP's electoral strategy are to be taken seriously, the threat to Labour could be equally as potent.
Ofcom stated that Ukip's electoral performance in the past two European Elections demonstrates that they represent a growing segment of public opinion and that ought to be reflected in their media coverage. The media's own watchdog are, though, modestly underplaying the role that the press can play in influencing public opinion and falsely creating a black and white split between television's role in "reflecting" and "influencing" public opinion.
In the history of political slogans, there cannot be another more contradictory than UKIP's catchy new phrase, purloined with extraordinary naivety from the British National Party. 'Love Britain, Vote UKIP.'
If you follow these rules and still don't get any MPs at the next general election, worry not. You will have, at the very least, gained notoriety and fame, you will be more powerful than you were and you will have made rich, helpful contacts that would otherwise not have been available to you, and if that doesn't spell political success, I don't know what does.
Not voting in the European elections on 22 May means letting others decide what Europe you will live in and what opportunities you will and won't have in the future. That's why engaging and participating is so important.
It is quite clear now that, 14 months before the election is held, the two leaders of the government are no longer pulling in the same direction and politicking is taking over. It isn't the policy that's driven them apart; it is, for each of them, their own personal survival... For all the surface calm, they are each now trying to destroy the other.
The promised head-to-head European Union debate between Nick Clegg and Nigel Farage has a strange dynamic - both men could emerge as winners.
Apart from 2014 being the 700th anniversary of the Battle of Bannockburn, the year Glasgow hosts the Commonwealth Games, and that Scotland plays host to the Ryder Cup, the vote on Scottish independence is also being held 100 years after the outbreak of the First World War.
So it seems at long last that Miliband has grown into his role, distinguishing Labour's policies from those of the coalition and starting to throw off the shackles of New Labour neoliberalism. We may finally see a return to a pluralist party political scene.
As well as being the new dark horse in British politics, Ukip have become well-known for their radically right-wing politics, unmistakeably expressing racist, sexist, homophobic views - you name it, they've said it. For many they have become a force to be defeated and left to the history books.
As the son of immigrants, I grew up living in a community in North London alongside people from numerous different backgrounds and cultures. I know how much immigrants can contribute to British society and we should welcome those who work hard and make a contribution. However, we have to take seriously, and address, public anxiety over the potential scale and effect of immigration from Eastern European countries.
Do you want my alternative take on Michael Gove's sacking of Baroness Morgan, Wendi Deng's note on Tony Blair, the lack of women in the Commons and the Ukip MEP who doesn't like mosques. Here's my review of the political week in 60 seconds.
If UKIP took itself about as seriously as the Monster Raving Loony Party takes itself, then it would be a laugh a minute. The fact that UKIP does take itself seriously is actually rather sad.
