Ed Miliband and his press team are very keen to promote an interview the Labour leader did with Absolute Radio yesterday. The general consensus is that Mr Miliband, who has struggled with publicity events in the past – remember that bacon sandwich – shone in the interview.
The Labour leader was interviewed by Absolute Radio’s Geoff Lloyd and said that the last film that had made him cry was a British film about gay activists who supported a striking mining village. He said: “Pride is about the lesbian and gay community in London who go and help the miners in Wales and Justine and I watched it recently. I blubbed.”
Asked about Jeremy Paxman’s description of him as a geek he added: “I plead guilty to being a geek. I’m proud.”
