Tim Farron blasts "sulky teenager" Miliband's 100 days "doing nothing"

Party President Tim Farron had hit the ground running in his new role before he even took office and his first official week in the job has been busy. He spent the first day of the year in Oldham East and Saddleworth. The last time I was there, the Labour campaign was one of the nastiest I'd come across so you need a robust figure to deal with the flack they're flinging.

It's fair to say that our Tim isn't best impressed with new Labour Leader Ed Miliband's first 100 days in office.

“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.”
And all that was before Newsnight revealed that Ed Miliband had twice argued in favour of raising VAT while a Cabinet Minister.
