Kinnock: Yes, Ed is Weird

Neil Kinnock tried to do his natural heir a favour this afternoon, giving an interview to Labour Uncut offering Miliband his support. Somewhat unfortunate, then, that the only really quotable part of the piece is the moment when he calls him weird:

“Ed is gutsy, brainy and as cool as hell. There’s all this stuff in the press, ‘Is Ed weird?’ Well, yes he’s weird, but then so was so was Churchill and Wilson, and Thatcher was the weirdest of the lot. I guess leadership produces some ‘oddness!’”

Kinnock argues that “the press is focused on [Ed’s] destruction which certainly compares, if not exceeds, my own experience”. Not exactly helpful that he’s now joined those providing the ammunition…
