Miliband's Spokesman In World Cup Pimping Gaffe

Katie Myler, Ed Miliband’s outgoing chief spokesman, has just committed Twitter suicide – sensationally talking down England’s bid for the World Cup, accusing the PM of “pimping” himself:

What would her Screws-editing father say? Presumably she believed that Blair and Ken Livingstone were pimping themselves in 2005 when pitching for the Olympics?

Via Paul Waugh at PoliticsHome.

UPDATE: Cue immediate grovelling backtrack:

“I wholeheartedly apologise for the remarks. They are no reflection whatsoever of Ed’s views. Of course, it goes without saying that I fully back the England bid”

Team Ed will clearly miss Katie when she swans off to spin for Burson-Marsteller next month. Bad Al she ain’t…

UPDATE II: Isaby puts the boot in:

“she is about to leave his employ anyway, so calls for her sacking would amount to nought. But I doubt we’ll be seeing “LadyMyler” near any genuine ermine any time soon…”
