Pointing the way to a swift exit
Even Daily Mail Comment, the authentic voice of the Vagina Monologue, has revisited that put-down from 1983.

That the popular press knows, deep down, that Miliband is not the fool they paint him as being, though, was summed up by the Murdoch Sun, which got an editorial out on Wednesday night after 10 Downing Street delayed its decision on TV debates. From the headline, “Debate farce”, readers were told this was A Very Bad Thing Indeed.
