Not really, that's what elections are for - the public didn't choose Labour at the last election, so I'm not sure what is to be gained by putting forward the same policies. The job of the opposition is to make sure that the government face proper scrutiny, its more important that the government's policies get implemented properly than it is for lots of ideas to be floating around. The Leader of the Opposition isn't just a wannabe-Prime Minister, its a proper role with an important function.

They are also supposed to put forward an alternative. Another Ed Failure. He is a joke candidate, plain and simple. What are the odds of a different leader for the libdems and labour before the next election?
