Ed Miliband's climate change, petrol price flip flop

So errrr..... in Government, Ed Miliband was the Secretary of State in the Climate Change department. In July 2009, he told Andrew Marr that we should all accept higher fuel bills in order to nudge us into saving the planet, driving electric cars etc etc.

Today he has formally come out for lower fuel prices and is going to force a vote to stop his own party's VAT rise.

Presumably this is because he either (a) didn't really give a crap about the planet back when he was for rises, or (b) thinks it's an easy bit of opposition opportunism to be against what he was for before becoming for again, or (c) both.
