Ed Miliband has summed up his new life on the back benches with one depressing tweet…
Walk onto holborn tube escalator. Man shouts ' oh my god it's Nick Clegg'... Hmmm not exactly— Ed Miliband (@Ed_Miliband) June 25, 2015
No word yet on whether Nick Clegg has suffered any similar embarrassments.
This isn't even the first time Miliband has been reminded of his fall from power.
In his first speech to the Commons since the General Election, he said: “In the time since the general election I can report to the House that I have found some small consolations of losing. Spending time with my two boys who feel that they have their dad back.
"Though I confess that my eldest, who’s just turned six, did bring me further down to earth last week. He suddenly turned to me out of the blue and said 'Dad, if there’s a fire at our house I think we'll be ok'.
"I said 'why’s that Daniel?'
"And he said, 'if we ring the fire brigade, they’ll recognise your name because you used to be famous'."
Although being mistaken for another former party leader may have brought Ed back down to earth with a bump, he had a reminder yesterday of his former glory days.
The Doncaster North MP met with the founder of the ‘Milifandom’, Abby Tomlinson.
The pair posed for pictures in front of the Houses of Parliament and took selfies in front of Big Ben.
The 17-year-old tweeted her delight at meeting her hero, calling it “genuinely one of the best moments of my life”.
Well @Ed_Miliband I think we at least partially achieved our goal of "breaking the internet". I cannot thank you enough for today.— Abby Tomlinson (@twcuddleston) June 25, 2015
I know now that no matter how many hateful people there are, I have met Ed Miliband, and he called me brilliant, and that's all that matters— Abby Tomlinson (@twcuddleston) June 25, 2015
and from now on whenever anyone is attempting to get me down, I'm just going to look at Ed's tweet and our pictures - instant happiness.— Abby Tomlinson (@twcuddleston) June 25, 2015
So don't worry Ed, someone still remembers who you are.
