FOREIGN Secretary David Miliband and Secretary of State for Energy Ed Miliband joined forces with MP Angela Smith to launch a new poster campaign for Labour in Prospects College, Basildon earlier today (saturday).
The campaign poster, designed by a young Labour activist, shows David Cameron depicted as DCI Gene Hunt from Ashes to Ashes with the slogan: “Don’t Let Him Take Britain Back To The ’80’s”.
In front of the national media and tight security, David Miliband made reference to 15% interest rates and 3 million unemployed as just two of the reasons to note vote Conservative.
Mr Miliband said: “I’ve been through the eighties once thanks. Never again.” While Energy Secretary Ed Miliband made reference to the what he saw as the growing isolation of the Tories in Europe and the £6.5 billion cut promised by Shadow Chancellor George Osborne.
