Miliband's Morrisons "Misspoke" Moment

David Miliband has made a return to the frontline of British politics – he’s back tweeting again. Guido had to feel a pang of sympathy when he read earlier that the prince across the water had proudly opened a supermarket in his constituency. How the mighty have fallen, from the Middle-East to Morrisons. However when Guido went to find a picture of this proud day, a big moment in the career of a backbencher, he uncovered a shocking truth:

“Crowds gathered at Morrisons in Ocean Road, South Shields, as Mayor Tom Pigott officially declared it open. The Mayor and Mayoress of South Tyneside, join Morrisons’s general store manager Gary Tiffany, left, and chief executive Dalton Phillips.”

Er, not one mention of the former Foreign Secretary? He isn’t in the photo and he certainly didn’t cut the ribbon. Guido isn’t quite sure how that constitutes “opening it” then? Has David Miliband actually stooped so low that he has to make up z-list celebrity appearances? As his close friend Hillary would put it, it appears he “misspoke”.
