A revelation today. I think I've been convinced to vote Labour at the next election by that bastion of the free press, the Daily Mail.
It sounds petty but I'd happily have Ed in power in preference to the other parties just to see how frothy mouthed the UK's version of Fox News becomes. In reality though, if my planned abstention meant that we had another idiot Coalition or Tory government then I'd be ashamed of myself and I'm now fairly convinced to vote for the best of a bad bunch in Labour.
Daily Mail shameful article on Ed Miliband's dead father on Saturday 28th Sept
Ed's reply printed today by the Mail
Mail Editorial today discussing Ed's rebuttal
More vitriol from Geoffrey Levy in the Mail today
The Mail have taken a fragmented, tiny bit of an entire lifetime and twisted it into shamefully smearing the reputation of a dead man who fought on our side under our cap badge in WW2.
Filth, just utter filth. If the Mail were a forum member then I'd be hitting the ban button for extreme and distasteful trolling.
Edit: in a rare show of solidarity, both Cameron and Clegg seem to have taken Ed's side, Cameron supporting a rebuttal against an attack on family but Clegg in full support of Ed's response.
