Nice one, Ed

One of the Leader of the Opposition’s attempts to establish his credentials as a ‘man of the people’, in the run up to the recent local council and Euro elections, was, er... ham-fisted.

The media had a field day as Ed Miliband recently tucked into an early bacon sandwich in New Covent Garden Market last week. As the aficionados of Britain’s favourite sandwich know too well, it’s virtually impossible to enjoy a decent ‘bacon sarnie’ with any dignity or decorum.

The carefully staged photo-shoot badly back-fired and, perhaps the Labour Party’s spin-doctors should have taken heed of Buckingham Palace’s meticulous protocols…photographs of our Queen eating food are as rare as hen’s teeth.
