While we're all waiting for the world economy to collapse, here's a bit of head-scratching humor, from this classic 2011 interview: Ed Milliband, leader of the UK Labor Party, thinks the strikes are wrong whilst negotiations are still underway. He thinks parents have been let down by both sides because the government has acted recklessly and provocatively in the ways it has gone about these issues. And he urges all parties to get round the negotiating table and stop this type of action happening again. And, most importantly, he's not afraid to say all that.

I think I got that right, but it's hard to be sure, since he's covering so many brilliant points in one interview. Sadly, this interview makes David Cameron seem like Winston Churchill.
