Fairs for all - isn't that better than Dave's slow train age of austerity? But surely Labour can do better than 'protecting' front line services? We have an excellent record of public service reform and strong ambitions to do more. Why this is largely ignored in the party's new campaign slogans and website is beyond me. We need more than 'protection' to combat the Tories: we need to show the level of our aspiration and ambition. Plans for academies and new school brands, improved healthcare and highspeed rail need to be given the airing they deserve.
