‘The Mirror’ is apparently struggling to find good stories to fill their newspaper with now that they can no longer just hack celebrities phones. In their latest this has the distinct scent of bullshit story they reveal that whilst leaving an election campaign event, no doubt crawling with the photographers and reporters constantly following him around, Ed Miliband the leader of the opposition was assaulted just weeks before the general election!
So why do I sound… let’s say ‘somewhat doubtful’ about this story? Well the more observant among you will notice the complete lack of photographs of this incident. That’s right, a top politician was punched outside of a press event and we are supposed to believe that not a single camera phone was present.
