Vlog Interview with Ed Milliband


Interview with Ed Milliband

Cllr. Nick Wallis | MySpace Video


To Gateshead and the Hilton Hotel this morning for a breakfast meeting of Labour's North East Business Forum. The keynote speaker was Ed Milliband MP, Secretary of State for Energy and Climate Change. He gave an excellent tour d'horizon, and then answered questions from businesspeople and academics.

He was good enough to spare a few minutes afterwards to record a vlog interview with me. Given my portfolio on Darlington Borough Council, it was a real pleasure to chat with him this morning.

Ed is sound, and appreciates that micro-generation of renewables has the potential for distributed ownership of these energy assets.

You're quite right, James - unfortunately I couldn't drill down to quite that level of detail in two-and-a-half minutes!

Very good interview, anyway. Ed rightly links sustainability and economic recovery. In this respect, the Tories don't have an industrial strategy for the domestic economy. In fact, I heard this from a former aide to Oliver Letwin, who says that the Tories have no plans for security of generation - which certainly leaves a rather scary energy gap in their thinking...
