ONLY the politically naive and gullible could claim that Ed Miliband has any socialist credentials because he has promised a two year energy price freeze! (Especially when energy corporations can put up prices to compensate!)
What would be socialist and beneficial to working class people is all utilities taken into public ownership, along with the banks, rail and bus services and run on a non-profit basis. A meaningful wealth tax could be introduced on the idle rich who are the real scroungers and corporate tax dodgers could be made to pay up! Obviously, under austerity-lite Labour it won’t happen.
