Can we please have #OmniScrambles as the official hashtag of this incident rather than #EggMiliband? Far, far better./ Via

Worst egging I’ve ever seen. You’ve got to back yourself and go for the throw. Must have been a Lib Dem. http://t.co/zm8DNRzY #eggmiliband/ Via
Ed Miliband has apparently been egged while walking about in Southampton #EggMiliband - why wasn’t @johnprescott there to defend him?/ Via
