Russell Brand in ‘Forgetting Ed Miliband’

Ex-Balls Aide Slaps Miliband’s “Squeezed Bottom”

Former Balls spinner Alex Belardinelli has been giving his prescription for where things went wrong under Miliband on the Daily Politics:

“We didn’t do enough. I think there are things we could have done differently. I think we could have had a message that was more pro-business. I think fiscal responsibility and making the sums add up could have been part of our message more day by day. And also I think we needed a broader a message… towards the end it ended up becoming less of a squeezed middle and more of a squeezed bottom. Most people aren’t affected by [the bedroom tax and zero hours contracts] and we know people don’t vote in an altruistic way.”

Sounds like we will be seeing more of the uncanny mannerisms that Belardinelli shares with his old boss. Shut your eyes and it could be Balls speaking. He says his future plans include TV punditry…

Stella Creasy Questions Dimbleby on Sexuality

Stella Creasy made her pitch for the Deputy Leadership last night, but the most memorable moment was her bizarrely questioning poor old David Dimbleby on his sexuality:

Creasy: How would you like it if someone treated you like that David?

Dimbleby: Did what?

Creasy: Somebody Judged you in that way. I feel worried and ashamed that sometimes the way we talk about..

Dimbleby: You’ve lost me now..

Creasy: Because if somebody said something so core to your being that your sexuality was something they could judge in that way. Everyone’s laughing at this, why is it funny?

The flamboyant (and married) tie aficionado was very confused…

UKIP’s Steven Woolfe Squares Up to Jean-Marie Le Pen Entourage

This is the moment UKIP’s Steven Woolfe was involved in a tense stand-off with French far right politician Jean-Marie Le Pen:

Woolfe appeared to say “out the way” as he walked straight through Le Pen’s interview, sparking an angry reaction from Le Pen and his camp. Woolfe tried to explain that a journalist had stepped on him before a Le Pen aide squared up to the UKIP man. Oooh la la…

UPDATE: Détente!
