So there's been a bit of a fuss about it today, with comments from Ed Miliband who said it was absolutely disgusting and disgraceful, and from no less a personage than David Cameron, who is a friend of Jeremy. (You can tell a lot about a person by the company they keep.)
David said that he thought it was a bit silly and he didn't really mean it.

What is rather worrying is that Dave issued a statement tonight through a Downing Street spokesman. It was as follows: "Execution is not government policy and we have no plans to make it government policy"
Ah, that's a relief, Dave, but then a day before the election you had no plans to raise VAT and a week afterwards you did and you have U-turned on every other promise since...
