Milibairn Born

Guido would like to send his congratulations to Ed Miliband and his partner Justine on the birth of their second son last night. There will be sighs of relief at HQ as Labour’s poll standing went up when they were leaderless. Ed is taking paternity leave, so keep at eye on those ratings. Plenty of time to fill in that vexatious birth certificate this time too…

UPDATE: Strategists at Victoria Street will be overjoyed – Ed has declared he is taking two weeks off. Could be a massive poll boost.

Quote of the Day

“Authoritarian? I wouldn’t actually describe the PM as being authoritarian because she doesn’t exactly have a lot of authority at the moment.”
