The Man Who Hated Ed’s Speech

After the fun and games of last conference season and the Mail’s ‘Ed’s Dad Hates Britain’ story, revenge was a dish served from the platform for the Labour leader. Ed used his conference speech to slam the Mail much to the joy of the crowd, for whom the paper have become Labour’s bogeyman de jour.

It was certainly an awkward moment for Mail on Sunday editor Geordie Greig , whose sister paper ran the offending Ralph Miliband story and who was conveniently sitting in the cheap seats of the Manchester Central Convention Centre, watching the speech live.

“All rather predictable really,” Greig told Guido as he scuttled toward the exit. Literally the first person to leave the hall after speech.

Quote of the Day
