And can Ed Miliband also put an 8 next to a ) without it turning into a smiley in shades?

Outrageous

#16 only please if it is the original, the “next gen” was a poor copy

22) Ed Miliband gave The Stig his first driving test; and failed him for being too wreckless

What? He wasn’t crashing enough?

“2) Ed Miliband can put I before E, even after C.”

What, you mean he can’t spell?

6. Michael McCormick

@Tim Worstall: He can spell ‘species’

“Ed Miliband has a carefully planned survival tactic in the event of a zombie apocalypse.”

“Ed Miliband has a carefully planned survival tactic in the event of a zombie apocalypse.”

Ooh, me too! Basically, it ends with me and my friends enjoying near-total military and resource control of my home town.

Over my undead body.
