Miliband: "Thank God I'm Not Married"

Ed Miliband faces the cold shoulder from Justine after an interview with Piers Morgan of which a Sky Sports presenter would be proud. While it wasn’t quite up there with Clegg’s “no more than thirty” comment in the GQ rite-of-passage, Ed did manage to “Thank God” that he isn’t married while discussing which other women he would like to get stuck on a desert island. How sensitive…

Or perhaps there is a smarter game at foot. Guido isn’t convinced by this attempt at manly banter. With Valentines’ just two weeks away to the day, could this be a false flag to add to the element of surprise when the Labour leader goes down on one knee on the 14th? Given it is vital swinging female voters that Ed needs to get on side if he is going to lead his party to victory, the comments seem somewhat risky. Why would he want to put off such a vital bloc?
