Ok, well, it's not necessarily Labour, but at the very least Miliband:

So, after helping to block a reform to the Lord which would have the same effect he now wishes to completely scrap it. The reasoning for this is that it, allegedly, is unfair on most of the UK given how many Lords are from London, I have to question how they define where they're from but that's largely irrelevant. What this means is that the people in most of the rest of the country aren't having their views heard. Surely that's a problem with the Lords as a whole? Do those Lords in London mean that the views of the people in London are having their way?

He also seems to have made a U-turn on the whole English votes for English laws business that he seemed so opposed to after the Scottish referendum, now deciding he does want a convention about English devolution.

The article has changed since I first read it as I recall reading a £30bn cost figure when I first read it, where's that coming from? Taxing the people [read poor] harder? Making cuts? Or, I should think far more likely, a larger deficit.

Because that's less likely to draw as much attention
And Ed claims to be talking on behalf of the party, rather than just airing his own views.

Touché, I was really bothered by the actual action he's taking.
