We're given reactions (both positive and negative) from only the following:
- Will Hutton (left-wing)
- Yvette Cooper (left-wing), speaking on behalf of Labour (left-wing)
- SNP (left-wing)
- Plaid Cymru (left-wing)
- Brendan Barber (left-wing) speaking for the TUC (left-wing)
- And a spokeswoman for the IPPR, which the BBC itself describes as "left-leaning".
Well if that's not what I call balance across the whole of the left-wing spectrum, I don't know what is! However, if we are to believe the BBC, nobody from the centre or the right of British politics has an opinion on this.
