After Jamie Reed’s death from smugness was saved by the live feed going down, today the plug was pulled on Chris Leslie…
Steve, a “traditional Labour voter”, tells the Daily Politics:
“I was brought up in a household that’s staunch Labour. My dad was a trade unionist all his life and I’ve only ever known the Labour Party in voting terms. This time I’ve just got no feeling for Ed Miliband whatsoever. I don’t like the fact that he shafted his brother to get the job in the first place.

Labour won’t find this joke very funny…

Instead BBC reporter Iain Watson was forced to explain their policy position to viewers.
Labour’s “NHS week” is going so well they are running away from the chance to talk about it…
Phillip Schofield introduces the next segment following his interview with the PM:
PS:“Up next a man who can pinch your wallet, your watch and even your tie without you even noticing”
DC:“Who’s that, Alex Salmond?”
Prezza looked like he was going to punch him…[…]
The Sun’s royal editor Duncan Larcombe turns the tables after 13 journalists were cleared this afternoon:
