Ed Miliband spoke on Wednesday at Google's 'Big Tent' event and used some rather interesting analogies to get his point across.

The excitement of being in a huge marquee brought out the Miliband inner child as he used 'The Simpson's' Monty Burns and Willy Wonka to demonstrate good and bad capitalism.

Monty Burns represents "irresponsible capitalism" while the child-safety law ignoring, Oopa-Loompa enslaving and generally quite sinister Willy Wonka is the chosen face of responsible capitalism.

Indeed.

What other lessons could Ed learn from the world of make-believe and cartoons?
