Today, The Shed’s modest contribution to the political debate is to suggest that nearly everyone has got it wrong about Ed Miliband. It is not Wallace he resembles so strikingly; it is Gromit.
The Shed cannot prove it yet but seems to remember that Gromit was the original amusing comparison but that was wiped out when Miliband confessed to seeing a resemblance to Wallace, which he must have thought more flattering.
A similar mistake was certainly made with David Cameron. Some commentators have thought he was once said to resemble R2D2, but the original observation (probably by Caitlin Moran) was that he looked like C-3PO carved out of ham.
