According to Guido the four attack lines that Labour are planning to use in the election campaign are: Ensuring the economic recovery, Protecting frontline public services, Protecting future jobs and Standing up for the many.
All sound dynamic and powerful but all so uncontroversial as to be meaningless. All apart from the last one "Standing up for the many", which I have a problem with.
When Gordon Brown and the Labour party are "standing up for the many", who will they be standing up against? I presume they will be standing up against the few, being the only ones left once "the many" are taken out of the equation. Black and Asian people are part of the few, lesbians and gays are part of the few, disabled people are part of the few, in fact another way of describing "the few" is "minorities".
Can it really be the case that one of the Labour party's campaign themes is a commitment to attacking minorities? Dog whistle politics at its worst!
