Why is the Observer employing a Mail journalist to smear Ed Miliband?

Pride's Purge

(not satire – it’s the UK press!)

The Observer has a naughty little article today claiming there are “at least” twenty shadow ministers calling for Ed Miliband to stand down.

I say naughty, because the article fails to name even one shadow minister.

And considering there are only about 24 shadow ministers in the entire shadow cabinet, “at least” 20 would have to be just about all of them. Including Ed Miliband himself.

In fact, the whole article is so ridiculous in its anti-Labour spin and propaganda, it’s exactly the kind of thing you’d expect to see in the Daily Mail.

Which is not very surprising considering the journalist who wrote the Observer piece – Daniel Boffey – used to write exactly the same kind of political smear articles for the Mail on Sunday:

Miliband and his £18m holiday villa

Fury over Gordon Brown’s ‘cynical’ letter to murder victim’s local paper
