Miliband to change tone on big companies

(From the FT today)

Labour’s leader will celebrate profit and wealth creation and laud the ‘great, dynamic businesses of our country’ as he launches a push for prosperity.

Ooh-er missus - Leopard changing spots and all that

It's the economy stupid. And its doing rather well thanks to some common sense and the reds out of office for a while.

Honestly?

I think his own PR/spin team want him gone, he's being set up to be deposed.
 
Labour don't do business and don't understand it.

Earn lots of money, we'll have a windfall tax off you Mr. Milliband meant.

It needed some clarity as exactly why he's courting big business

From The New Statesman in April

The second is the impact of Ed Miliband's party reforms. To date, his decision to require all trade union members to opt into donating to Labour, has prompted Unite and the GMB to reduce their funding by £2.55m. Both unions have already made it clear that some of this shortfall will be reduced through one-off donations but the party is still likely to suffer a net financial loss.

The third is the likelihood of the party winning the next general election. As one source recently pointed out to me, this would mean the loss of all of the £6.4m Labour currently receives in "short money", the state funding made available to assist opposition parties with their costs (such as travel expenses and running the leader's office). "A lot of people know their jobs are on the line if we win," he said.
With Labour's general election spending already constrained by its debt reduction target, expect the party to step up its fundraising efforts over the next year in a bid to ensure a fair fight with the Tories.

Mixed messages from Labour? (Link to a story in today's FT)

BAE chief attacks business ‘demonisation’
Sir Roger Carr has taken a poke at Labour during an event designed to improve the party’s rocky relationship with the corporate world

Taking into account the understandable FT bias towards business, it still raises the issue of how Labour are going to play the economy card for the next election.
