Steve Richards writes in the New Statesman of Ed Miliband:
The mood around Ed Miliband is one of paranoia and suspicion… Ed Miliband faces a crisis. The impossible task of leadership becomes even tougher for the player in difficulty. Dissenters grumble more loudly. There is a sense of panic…
There is a degree of paranoia about the conduct of other frontbenchers.
That’s not a good look for a party leader wanting to be successful.
