In a quarrelsome interview on Radio 4’s Today Programme, John Humphrys quizzed Ed Miliband on the Labour leader’s speech later this morning and his grand vision for the party.
Mired with sibling-like squabbling from Humphrys, the host’s interview style ensured tiffs blighted the encounter between (John) Humphrys and (Edward) Miliband, leading to the Today Programme’s Garry Richardson cheekily taking the opportunity to refer to the duo as “Radio 4’s answer to Jedward”.
With the Labour leader poised to deliver a keynote speech from London’s Oxo Tower, Miliband is expected to warn his party over spending and challenge the notion that Labour are solely a party for the good times.
The main event starts at 11.30. Stay tuned for updates.
