While the Labour party limps into obscurity under the leadership of middle class student vanity project Jeremy Corbyn, the 'Blairite scum' previously in charge continue to have a right old time of it.
Presumably inspired Ed Balls' transformation from aspiring national treasurer to aspiring national treasure via a series of acid trip PTSD-triggering Strictly Come Dancing performances, Ed Miliband has appeared on Channel 4 comedy show The Last Leg done up like a 'rockstar', singing A-Ha and – of course – making fun of that time he fucked up eating a bacon sandwich and doomed the country's poor to two decades of dancing for crumbs at a banquet of guffawing Tories.
Ed makes a decent stab at sending himself up, donning a crap leather jacket, strumming ineffectively at a guitar like a teenager during his first frottage session and, at the end, saying: "Oh for fuck's sake, talk about a mid-life crisis."
Of course the real mid-life crisis – if categorised by a painful lack of self-awareness and an embarrassing dalliance with tastes best left behind in its student days - is taking place in the party he once led.
In the meantime, what can we all do but laugh and await with baited breath the sight of Harriet Harman eating kangaroo bollocks on I'm A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here.
