Excusing the unacceptable

There is loads of political commentary around today about Ed Miliband's speech to the Labour Party conference - and rightly so.  But a fair portion of it seems to be about the fact that Ed talked left in order to capture the Union vote to get him elected as leader, but now elected is talking right wing in order to make himself electable.  It has been said, almost as if that is what he has to do.

Surely, taking one position with your own party and another with the electorate at large is just downright hypocrisy?  I'm pretty sure that he's not the first to do it, but that doesn't make it right.
