People think Ed Miliband hosting Jeremy Vine's radio show epitomises how weird things have become
Does he have a voice for radio?
Listeners were more than a little surprised to hear the recognisable voice of Ed Miliband hosting a show on the radio this morning.
The Doncaster North MP and former Labour leader was standing in for Jeremy Vine on BBC Radio 2 and many seem to think it could be a sensible full-time career move.
