ED Miliband has dismissed the latest opinion polls, insisting they are nothing more than a fairly good indication of how people will vote in a general election.
As the Tories overtook Labour for the first time in two years, Miliband stressed it was more important to have policies that people will probably like at some indeterminate point in the future, especially if they really give it some thought.
He said: “Elections are not decided on votes, they are decided on arguments and I really like our arguments.
“Especially that one about how gas bills are dreadful.”
He added: “It’s all Ed Balls’ fault. He’s the worst person I’ve ever met.”
