Yes, instead of calling Ed Miliband "Labour Party Leader", they went for "Labour Party Lady".

Immediately, people on Twitter started questioning their eyesight.

Did ITV news really just caption Ed Miliband as ‘Labour Party Lady’?!?!

Until Labour elect a female leader, maybe this will have to do.

Who says there aren't women in senior leadership? Oops! #labourpartylady #typo @EdMiliband_MP @itvnews
