The Words and Wisdom of Ed Milliband

Long Die The Tragedy Model

Good Grief! How did we miss this classic?

Was it through our own grief at the passing of Jack Ashley?

Anyway, how this came about. I was playing around with the Gustave Flaubert image that appears in my blog below. I had the idea to change the background to red on one occassion, blue on another, orange on another and blue and orange to signify the coalition. I was wondering who I might represent the 'You What' instead of Gustave. I immediately thought of Jack Ashley. David Blunkett ran through my mind as did Ann Begg

Looking for a caricature of Jack I found this quote on the ITV website. they accredited it to Ed Milliband.

My how far we have fallen, how much we have lost. Tragic, Loss and Courage indeed Ed.
