He indulges in name calling

"For years now, I and others have been waiting for Miliband to launch a sustained attack on Ukip..." says Nick Cohen in the Observer.

And yet he writes a thousand-word article in which he makes no attempt to engage with UKIP policy:

Instead he indulges in name calling.

“…rabble-rouser and a coward”

“He plays with racism…”

“…pockets the money of the hardworking taxpayers"

“…an alliance of the septic and the geriatric…”

“…a movement of the empty-headed led by the foul-minded.”

“…a foul stain in national life.”

This is the language of the student union circa 1978.
