6 February 2015 Updated: 20:24 GMT, flu jabs and a deadly silenceBy Published: 00:02 GMT,Ed’s bad week (part 2)Last week saw the disastrous backfiring of Labour’s attempt to ‘weaponise’ the NHS.This week it was Ed Miliband’s economically illiterate plans to hike National Insurance and Corporation Tax reinstate the 50p tax band freeze energy bills and clobber the owners of bigger homes that exploded in his handsThe warning on Sunday from the head of Boots that such anti-business policies would be a ‘catastrophe’ was devastatingBut even more damaging was Red Ed’s ill-judged response in which he and his MPs made bitter attacks on Stefano Pessina and the tax status of Boots – which employs 70000 in the UK and paid 550million to the Exchequer last yearTrue some may find it distasteful that Mr Pessina lives in a tax-haven in Monaco just as the Tories leave themselves open to criticism by relying on toxic donations from the City and hedge funds – who have given David Cameron’s party more than 12million during this ParliamentBut the ferocity of the attack on Boots by Mr Miliband – who famously described big business as predators – ‘terrified’ captains of industry and led to day upon day of searing criticism of his leadership in which dozens of wealth-creators warned that a Labour government would scare away investors stifle growth and drag Britain ‘back to the 1970s’Most woundingly it was Labour donors peers and ex-ministers at the front of the queue – with the entrepreneur Assem Allam who donated 210000 only last year saying the party was treating successful businessmen as if ‘they should go away and die’ adding: ‘They’re in danger of promoting communism’In response Ed Balls was asked on Tuesday to name a single prominent businessman who did still back Labour Tellingly he couldn’t do soBy Thursday the party was alienating another section of the electorate as the arrogant yet ineffectual education spokesman Tristram Hunt – he who wants sex lessons for five-year-olds – scoffed on Question Time at a fellow panellist who had been educated ‘by nuns’This crass disregard for the role played by Catholic schools follows an equally sneering tweet by Labour frontbencher Emily Thornberry – in which she mocked a working class voter for displaying a union flag outside his houseOf course the quasi-Marxist Hampstead intellectuals have always sneered at the common man so should anyone be surprised at Labour’s contempt for its own votersThe conundrum for Mr Cameron is why – with Labour seemingly hell-bent on driving away business and key sections of the electorate – he is not ahead of Red Ed in the polls For his and Britain’s sake he must urgently find the answer? from Cincinnati, he would start making references to his apparent past life as a female.
