PM Cameron squandered Britain's global clout - Miliband
Uk’s Opposition Labour leader Ed Miliband will say today, that Prime Minister David Cameron has squandered Britain's influence by forging an inward-looking approach to international affairs that has left the world's fifth largest economy isolated.
Less than two weeks before a May 7th election, Miliband will seek to drag Cameron's foreign policy record to the heart of the campaign which has so far seen almost no debate of international affairs beyond references to immigration.
Miliband, who describes himself as a Jewish Atheist, will also call for major world powers to bolster the role of the United Nations in resolving conflicts in the Middle East, including between the Israelis and Palestinians.
Miliband angered some Jewish voters in 2014 when he instructed his party to support a symbolic motion in the British parliament in favour of recognising Palestine as a state.
