Ed Miliband he did over his own brother, failed to win an election, then found a personality and became quite amusing on social media.
But Ed and his brother David will forever been remembered for two photos!
One is Dave with his banana.
Number two is Ed manhandling a bacon sandwich…
A Wikipedia on the matter page reads: “A photograph of then-Labour Party leader Ed Miliband eating a bacon sandwich became a source of sustained commentary and the subject of an internet meme in 2014 and 2015. Taken for the London Evening Standard newspaper while Miliband was campaigning for local elections in May 2014, the image became well known following the popular perception of it as making Miliband appear awkward, error-prone and incapable of performing simple tasks.”
Look the Miliband’s are not the only ones…
Ok a bit of serious stuff before we get to a new twist in Ed’s bacon journey.
As Shadow climate secretary he has hinted that Labour could require newly-built homes to have solar panels on their roofs if it wins power.
Asked whether his party would to pass new legislation requiring solar panels on new builds, he replied: “On the solar rooftop revolution, that’s something we’re very interested in.”
He did not give details of what the party might be considering, but said: “Watch this space, we’ll say more about this.
“I think it’s a huge opportunity on commercial premises, and huge opportunity in the home as well,” he added.
New Bacon farce?
Someone on Twitter posted a picture of a food menu and wrote: “My sister sent me this photo of a menu she saw on holiday and I’m crying.”
The restaurant appears to be located in Spain.
The there is always this…
