Awkward Ed Meets a Voter

 

This afternoon Ed met Peter Baldwin, an electrician from Lancashire:

Also known as ‘Doing a Miliband’…

“I am not responsible for my employer’s tax affairs.”

While writing in today’s paper that “while the poor’s smallest misdemeanours are punished, the rich are able to draft the loopholes they then use to avoid tax”…

Miliband Begs Labour Loons to Behave on Camera

Excruciatingly, before today’s Q&A, Ed Miliband was forced to plead with his audience:

“I want you, ladies and gentlemen, to be very nice to the media. Sometimes they ask some not very nice questions but we have to be absolutely nice to them.”

How did that go?

Not even his activists are listening to him…
