They say travel broadens the mind, and Ed Miliband needs to travel more. To China, India and Brazil, but also to South Korea, Mexico, Turkey and Indonesia. If he did he would see the evidence before his eyes of a global revolution taking place. This revolution, and how Britain can best be a contender in the global race, is the biggest fact of life in politics today.
To dismiss this phenomenon as a 'race to the bottom' is so breathtakingly arrogant, parochial and ignorant that it demonstrates Ed Miliband's lack of seriousness and suitability as a national leader.
The whole world order, that has existed since at least the Industrial Revolution, is undergoing an upheaval. The change is incremental but it is also fast.
