Remembering how to be a politician, Ashworth added that the party was going to listen to British people to come up with policies. “Our schools can be much better, our NHS can be much better” he said – launching into policy buzzword bingo.
“We can do much better to make the air that we breathe cleaner,” he said, adding: “We’ve got to do more in the economy”. Sounds like thorough and concrete stuff.
Reid added that it was “ironic” that the party claims it needs to tell the electorate what it stands for, but can’t because it is “confidential.”
Ashworth said that that was “a throwaway comment” and added: “I was talking about the particular meeting but, look, we are going to be having a big policy review with the country.”
