Tim Farron: Miliband’s 100 days of indecision

Commenting on Ed Miliband's speech in Oldham following his first 100 days as Labour Leader, Liberal Democrat President Tim Farron said:

"Ed Miliband has spent his first 100 days doing exactly nothing. No answers, no policies and no apology for the mess that Labour made, just indecision, head in the sand economics and a blank piece of paper.

"In Government he failed on the economy, in opposition he's failed the people of Oldham and Saddleworth by promoting a disgraced MP who spread racially divisive lies.

"People in Oldham and Saddleworth deserve better than an MP from a party that would've stood idly by and watched Britain head towards Irish-style collapse. Tough decisions protect Britain, not opportunistic complaining and blank pages.

"This New Year the Liberal Democrats are making the positive difference in Government. We're all working to clean up after Labour's disastrous 13-year house-party, Ed Miliband's still the sulky teenager trying to pretend it wasn't his fault."
