1. Labour leader Ed Miliband has used an awards acceptance speech to lash out at claims that his dad used to kill kittens.
2. No, really.
4. Ed read out the newspaper’s harrowing claims about his father’s anti-feline activities to the audience at The Spectator’s awards.
5. And generally showed that he had a sense of humour.
7. UPDATED: The Sunday Sport has responded. They claim they’ve talked to Eunice, the cat owner featured in the story:
Eunice is glad this has got @Ed_Miliband’s attention & hopes he’s careful around kittens if he wants to be PM. http://t.co/jsHJwcVN7r
