Outside the Box: Shock defeats for Milibands as political football gets serious

There were obviously mixed emotions in the Miliband household last Saturday night after the afternoon's shock result; whoever would have thought that David's favourites Arsenal would be beaten at home by West Bromwich Albion? No wonder he was having to put on such a brave face for the cameras. Ed, of course, was in much better form, after Leeds' late winner in the Yorkshire derby with Sheffield United, for we can confirm that it is at Elland Road where his heart lies (he might not have been feeling quite so smug after the astonishing 6-4 defeat at home to Preston in midweek). The Miliband family lived in Leeds during the 1970s and Ed is now a Doncaster MP. As Leeds followers sing whenever they play Donny: "You're just a town full of Leeds fans." Of the five candidates for the Labour party leadership, only Diane Abbott did not declare her football allegiance, although as the representative of Hackney North and Stoke Newington she could reasonably choose between Tottenham and Leyton Orient (tough call, Di). Andy Burnham, who recently said he would rather play for Everton in the FA Cup final than become Prime Minister, had a bad day last Saturday as he finished fourth out of five and the Blues hit rock bottom in the Premier League; the other candidate, Ed Balls, was also in mourning after Norwich managed to lose 2-0 at home to Hull.
