Ed Miliband: What Is Vice?

Asked a question about patronising young voters at Labour’s ‘Youth Manifesto’ launch, Ed successfully managed to patronise young voters. Here is his exchange with former Telegraph investigations reporter Ben Bryant, now at Vice News:

BB: “Hello, Ben Bryant from Vice News”

EM: “From where?”

BB: “Vice News.”

EM:Oh right. What does Vice News do?”

BB: “We make films, we write stories.”

EM: “Right.”

BB: “So one of the criticisms of this election campaign has been how controlled it is. You yourself have only done one walkabout with voters so far. Don’t you think that all of this stage management bullsh*t is particularly alienating young people?”

EM: “I don’t think you count as stage managed, do you Ben?”

No wonder they were keeping him away from questions…

Quote of the Day

Peter Mandelson tells Emma Barnett…

“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.”
