Dozy Ed and His Sleepy Spinners

It’s handbags and at dawn between the Murdoch empire and Ed Miliband. Hardly news anymore, but after Gordon’s hackgate blunders, you would think someone would check the facts before going into battle. People spotted that Ed Miliband had clearly dozed off for a moment during Yvette Cooper’s speech yesterday, and who can blame him. The official line given to the Sun was that he was “looking down at his iPhone”. You can be the judge of that…

Anyone with any clue what they were doing would have left it at that, but instead Ed couldn’t help but try to have the last word with this tweet from his press team:

Harsh words you might say, but all the more embarrassing when you look at which other paper covered the nodding off. Step forward the darlings of the Hackgate scandal – the Guardian:

“He blinked. He kept his eyes open with imaginary matchsticks. Then he finally gave up and drifted into the arms of Morpheus, only to wake up with a jerk.”

Never too late to say sorry Ed…
