Ed Miliband has today revealed that his six-point plan for Britain has six points within each point, but says that this would not make it a thirty-six-point plan.
The Labour leader said: “Some people have said to me that a six-point plan with six points within each point is actually a thirty-six-point plan, but what I have to say is this. A six-point plan is still a six-point plan regardless of how many points are within each point.
“Let me explain. Before trying to understand the complexities of a point-plan system, we must first address it. And there’s no point doing that, until we’ve looked at it. It’s as simple as that.”
David Cameron made his feelings clear: “One minute Ed Miliband’s talking about a five-point plan, the next minute he’s talking about a seven-point plan. And now I hear he’s talking about points within each point of a point plan.
“What he’s got to realise is – and I’ve told him this time and time again – it doesn’t matter how many points there are to any of his plans, because they’re all focused on the same things: the NHS, the cost of living crisis, and the housing crisis.
“He could come up with a hundred-point plan and still forget to mention issues such as immigration and the deficit. The man’s an idiot.”
