Ed Miliband taking pictures on the Tube proves Milifandom is very much alive and well

By Prudence Wade

The former Labour leader shows himself to be a truly class act.

Cast your mind back to the heady days of spring 2015: Britain was still in the EU, the Duchess of Cambridge gave birth to Princess Charlotte, and Milifandom was at its height.

Yes, before the fateful 2015 general election, the country was gripped with mania for Ed Miliband. However, even though the former Labour leader might be gone from frontline politics, he’s definitely not forgotten.

Yesterday Miliband was going about his day travelling on the Tube when he spotted a group of girls taking a surreptitious selfie with him in the background.

Instead of feeling annoyed and a bit hassled, Miliband stepped up to the plate and asked for a photo with the girls – which Alice Harrison soon posted on Twitter.

It was a truly baller move that didn’t go unappreciated by others in the carriage.

And you can be sure this has inflamed the hearts of the Milifandom anew.

It’s almost like the events of the last couple of years haven’t happened – the love for Miliband seems to have remained true.

It’s the bright spot of happiness that we all needed.

Also FYI – if you don’t already follow Miliband on Twitter, it’s definitely worth it.

It seems that he’s been using some of his spare time to hilariously troll people recently – just see this tweet he posted the day that George Osborne was announced editor of the Evening Standard.

Are we about to see the dawn of a new era of Milifandom?
