Miliband Goes Crying to Mail

Miliband’s decision to rise to the Mail saying mean things about his dad went well then. Touch a nerve?

“Britain has always benefited from a free Press. Those freedoms should be treasured. They are vital for our democracy. Journalists need to hold politicians like me to account — none of us should be given an easy ride — and I look forward to a robust 19 months between now and the General Election. 

But what appeared in the Daily Mail on Saturday was of a different order all together. I know they say ‘you can’t libel the dead’, but you can smear them.”

So Ed gets a fifth of the page, the Mail use to the rest to twist the knife. Comprehensively. What did he expect them to do?

“I think that Jeremy Corbyn himself should search his conscience and ask himself whether he’s the best person to lead the Labour Party into the general election with the best chance of success for the party.”
