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

Lucy Allan explains her positive comments about the Brexit Party…

“If EU elections are held, Leave supporting voters will want to vote for Leave supporting candidates… Usual party loyalties will be eclipsed by the Leave v Remain divide. It’s good to see strong candidates in the Leave camp. However, I sincerely hope we leave the EU before these elections are held so that we can move on and not waste time and money on unnecessary EU elections.”
