“Nothing wrong with being a bit weird”
Like most politicians, Miliband is at his best when he is himself. The problem lies not in his presentation but in the sense that too often comes through that, either he hasn’t made up his mind on an issue, or if he has he doesn’t want to reveal it.
If he has answers to some of the big policy questions he has been avoiding, if he has a story to tell about a Labour government that would change people’s lives for the better, if he has confidence in his convictions and is now ready to reveal all of those things, the problem will be more than halfway solved.

There’s nothing so wrong with being a bit weird. Politicians are weird. They’d have to be to do the job. Being awkward is something else. And that comes from giving the impression that you can’t, or won’t, say what you think.
