Super Ed

Heard the one about the mysterious heir to a family fortune who is secretly a superhero by night? If Ella Phillips, 29, from Camden is anything to go by, the Miliband tactic of trying to win over one voter at a time on the ground seems to be paying off. Apparently Ed is “a bit like an action hero”:

“There was a bike in front of me which suddenly stopped so I had to make an emergency brake. The back wheel flipped over, and the next thing I knew my face was hurtling towards the ground. There must have been a fault with the brakes or the chain. Then, there was Ed Miliband’s face looking very concerned at me. I started to wonder how badly I’d banged my head. My first thought was that I was seeing things because I was still in quite a daze.”

That was not as scary as that sounds: “What added to all the confusion was that he was actually attractive and not geeky at all. Even the way he appeared was suave. He was dressed casually but he had style.” Rumours the Labour leader was wearing a mask and cape, are greatly exaggerated. “He mysteriously appeared out of nowhere” – a feeling well known to David, 47, from New York.

Quote of the Day

President Trump on May’s Brexit deal:

“I would say that Brexit is Brexit. … The people voted to break it up. So I would imagine that’s what they’ll do. But maybe they’ll take a different route, I’m not sure that’s what they voted for.”
