Ed Miliband bounded on to the stage without his jacket, promising the conference session would be for delegates to ask questions and that he wouldn’t be making a speech. Then he made a speech.
You can’t blame him I suppose. He’s waited two and a half years for some media praise. Now that it’s come he wants to wallow in it.
Plus, the Great Western Rail Franchise fiasco meant the government had not just given him an open goal but had practically kicked the ball in the net for him.
When he’d finished speaking, a great grandma from Brighton stood to ask a question but instead proclaimed that Ed had kissed her at the south west Labour conference. It seemed insignificant at first but when another woman stood up and said Ed had kissed her too a few eyebrows raised.
A third stood up: “You haven’t kissed me yet, but you kissed Barbara yesterday.”
Nearby by Barbara blushed. Ed really has been enjoying his new found success.
