New leader of British Labour Party walked away from Phelim's hard questions

Ed MilibandEd Miliband narrowly defeated his brother David Miliband by one percent today to become the new leader of the British Labour Party.  The media has already dubbed Ed as "Red Ed" for his left wing views.  Based on our interactions with him at Copenhagen, we'd also suggest "Silent Ed."  

Ed is a staunch supporter of climate legislation and is expected to push a number of climate policies from a feed-in tariff to Renewable Heat incentives.

What we do know for sure is that Ed doesn't like to be asked hard questions about climate science.  He attended Copenhagen, and Phelim got the chance to ask him about Phil Jones and the Climategate controversy.  Ed's response was to have his aid shut the door in Phelim's face.  You can see it here, at about 2:30 into the video:

Is this the response we should expect of political leaders?  You don't walk away from controversy, you demand an investigation into it on taxpayers behalf.  Ed Miliband's silence on Climategate shows his concern for his political career will stop him from confronting corruption in the climate science community.

Taking a look back through history, it's exactly the response we should expect. Why would we expect people we give power to make law over us actually to answer questions about those laws or policies? That would just be a screwy world. (sarcasm)
