|Ed Milliband , leader of the Labour Party |
prospective MP and Prime Minister
The Happy Warrior of 2015
Essentially the Labour proposition is about selling their leader.
Like many speakers Mr Milliband favours the delivery in the rhythm of threes - a power tool of rhetoric
Ready Ready Ready
He said: "I am ready, ready(1) to put an end to the tired old idea that as long as we look after the rich and powerful we will all be OK. Ready (2) to build a country that works for working people once again. Ready (3) to put into practise the truth that it is only when working people succeed, that Britain succeeds.
"If you elect me your Prime Minister in just over three weeks' time, I will work for that goal. I will fight for that goal. Every (1) single day. In everything (2)I do. In every (3) decision I make."
Mr Milliband has been taking an enormous amount of advice in presenting skills.
It's not quite yet part of him . The multi 7 debate was a stranger arena for him compared to Mr Cameron and Mr Clegg who performed at the one five years ago..
Not only do the political leaders have to speak coherently but must get the look correct -whether to look into the camera lens or to the facilitator and thereby through to the audience or debate looking directly to the other speakers.
A Sunday Newspaper , **The Sun on Sunday came into possession of Mr Milliband's private notes for the first TV debates of the seven leaders . The have the notes watermarked with the paper's brand .
Presenting the BODY LANGUAGE of the Happy Warrior
In his comeback and put downs ( I hasten to advise salespeople NOT to do comebacks and put downs - we are not politicians. Our sell is every day NOT once very five years)
“You ( Mr Cameron) and Nick Clegg wrote the book on chaotic coalitions – chaos in the NHS (1), chaos on immigration (2), chaos on living standards (3) – and now you’re asking for the chance to do it all over again.”
“Nigel ( Mr Farage) you think all the problems of this country can be traced back to Europe (1), immigration (2) and breastfeeding in cafés. (3)”
