Far, Far Away from the Barricades

It's a sad reflection, but it occurs to me that I cannot imagine any circumstances under which Ed Miliband would say of a strike (at least, of a strike in the United Kingdom), "This action is justified. The strikers have my support and the support of the Labour Party."

The closest I ever heard him come was during the student protests last year, when he said something on the lines of "I was thinking about joining them, then I noticed it was time for Countdown." But that was in his post-election firebrand days.
