16 Times Ed Miliband Delighted Us In 2014

From bacon sandwiches to Gareth, this year has had some particularly memorable highlights.

Posted on

1. When Ed Miliband got bored during a speech and tried to sneakily eat something without anyone noticing.


4. And then, after he gave his final conference speech before the election, everyone was only talking about someone he mentioned called Gareth. Who he met in a park.


5. When he said he feels "respect" when he sees a white van.


9. That time he laid a wreath and left this pretty rubbish message.

14. That time he awkwardly stared at a camera and so someone set it to Drake.

16. And finally, of course, that time former Hear'Say band member Myleene Klass ranted at Miliband and told him: "You can't just point at things and tax them." / Via
