A Human Wedding

During the Labour Leadership race, a much hyped line used by Ed’s younger supporters was that he “spoke human”. But if team Ed are trying to grow on that human aspect, they are not doing very well. The dig at his nerdy brother seems to constantly come back to haunt him. Firstly there was the not getting married, then the suddenly getting married saga. Then there was the lack of best man, at the risk, some say, of his brother declining the offer. And now we learn that he will be having a joint stag do with his, umm, wife to be. How  many blokes picture that as their final night of freedom?

Though there is no such thing as a normal, team Ed seems to be going out of their way to define what isn’t. He’s apparently planning for an election, but how many people are going to look at Ed and think “that’s just odd”? If Ed speaks human, Guido isn’t sure what the rest of us are chatting…
