Haven’t had time to today to properly blog the New Statesman New Media Awards, so will just mention the strange contortions of Miliband. He has a nervous energy about him. These are a few positions into which he managed to contort, some of them were a lot more weird and unfortunately Guido failed to capture them – on stage his facial expressions had the air of someone on amphetamines. As reported elsewhere he managed to have a go at Guido in his speech for “reycling Westminster rumours” (trans. telling the truth). He did a public reading of posts from Devil’s Kitchen during his speech – just as well he didn’t do a reading from his own yawn inducing blog of wonkery which costs the taxpayer a pound a word.
Miliband, if I recall correctly, basically exhorted Guido to blog in the service of a higher noble purpose. Not a chance. The day when a government minister praises Guido is the day he thinks it might be time to quit
