Jolly well done on winning the leadership of the Labour Party.
Even I can see that it's a great achievement despite the fact that, as an evil Tory, I don't share your reverence for the Labour movement. I'm ashamed to admit I'm especially Philistine - I'll hear a Labourite waxing lyrical about the Party's concern for the common man and I'll think "What a load of self-serving cobblers," but then I'm boorish like that. I also have a tendency - which I know modern Labour abhors - to consider historical trends. They've rather put me off your lot too, what with the almost-but-not-really comical mishandling of the economy which has happened invariably under a Labour administration and, more recently, the flagrant lies and contempt for ordinary voters.
But I'm sure you will be different, Ed! How do I know this? Because you said so, incessantly, in your acceptance speech. I got the message loud and clear: change, change, change, change, we lost so we have to change, change, change, change. Powerful stuff. Dizzying.
In the spirit of co-operation (which is working rather well for your opponents - eek!) I thought I'd offer you some advice. It comes from a very lowly figure and not from a natural supporter, but I am a brother politico. Although I'm afraid I can't literally replace your brother. (Give him time Ed; he'll forgive and forget. Well, maybe. In fact you'd probably better dope him.) I can share some suggestions with you though!
