As if Labour in Scotland didn't have their troubles to seek Miliband is now trying to make an explicit appeal to Tory voters in England. In an interview given to The Observer he states:
"I want to reach out to Tory voters, to Liberal Democrat voters, to Ukip voters, to non-voters"
and perhaps even more damning:
"Ed Miliband issues call to moderate Tories: 'I’ll be your champion'"
This wooing of Tory voters in England will probably not go down well with the dwindling number of traditional Labour supporters in Scotland who are still considering voting for the party. It may be a sign that Labour think they cannot salvage the situation in Scotland and must instead chase the centre right ground. Over to you, Jim.
