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”.

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.”
