LISTEN: Miliband’s Radio Wiltshire Clusterf**k

Ed Miliband has just been clusterf**ked by a local radio DJ on BBC Radio Wiltshire. Listen to the Labour leader try to cover up the fact he has absolutely no clue about the politics of Swindon, where he was campaigning:

Presenter: What do you make of Jim Grant?
EM: I beg your pardon?
Presenter: Jim Grant, do you think he has done a good job?
EM: I think that lots of Labour representatives are doing a good job right across the country and I…
Presenter: You do know who Jim Grant is Mr Miliband?
EM: You will enlighten me I am sure.
Presenter: Swindon Labour leader.
EM: Yeah I think he is doing a good job.
Presenter: Will he feel like you support him enough if you don’t even know his name?
EM: Well he is doing a good job as leader of the council Jim is and I think that is the case.
Presenter: I mean it’s Swindon Labour leader. Do you think by your comments now people might be a bit perplexed by why you wouldn’t know who Jim Grant is?
EM: No, I know that Jim is doing a good job for Swindon and I think he is doing a good job as leader of the council.
Presenter: But he is not leader of the council is he Mr Miliband? It’s a Conservative led council.
EM: I think he is doing a good job for Labour on the council. I think he is doing a good job for Labour on the council.
Presenter: So let’s be clear. Who runs Swindon council?
EM: It’s a Conservative controlled council.

Out of touch with his own candidates…
