Ed Miliband and Margaret Thatcher
We all know Miliband Jr is a prat but today he has excelled. On the train back to London from Essex, maybe mummy and daddy took him to Southend to make some sandcastles, he apparently said of the government:
"After two years of government people start to think: 'You can't blame the last government any more.' "
Funny that as his party, and whining socialists generally, still blame Margaret Thatcher for anything from the drought to having the trots. Mummy must have given him too much blancmange.
