You might have thought that following with Labour's defeat in the election – and Miliband's resignation as leader – people might have got bored of him. But they haven't.

He appeared in the House of Commons today for a debate about FIFA, but people were paying more attention to his expressions. And his sass was absolutely perfect.

"When someone waves at you and you're just being polite."

A Radio 4 journalist was the first to spot him during the debate, looking a bit confused.

And people really noticed it.

Meanwhile some journalists also came to their own conclusions about why Miliband looked so distant.

Ed looks like he smoked a massive fucking spliff before deciding to walk back into the chamber.

Whatever he was doing before he walked into the chamber, one's thing for sure: He's back.
