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
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.
