Ed Miliband’s official Christmas card comprehensively OWNS David Cameron

Mocking a tweet by his rival and former prime minister, the Ed Stone rises again.

Ed Miliband, in his horribly bittersweet post-party leader role of Commons clown, has come up with the Christmas card of the year.

Mocking David Cameron’s now infamously poorly aged tweet ahead of the May 2015 election, offering voters are choice between “stability and strong Government with me, or chaos with Ed Miliband, the former Labour leader photoshopped his rival’s tweet numerically on an image of the “Ed Stone” – the ludicrous structure he chiselled Labour’s promises onto as a campaign stunt.

Well played, Ed. But why couldn’t you have avoided the chaos by winning?
