Ok, not quite. But this snippet from GQ's interview with Shadow Justice Secretary Sadiq Khan is almost a description of Ed Miliband's rise to the Labour leadership:

"One of my criticisms of a lot of politicians of all parties is that they're career politicians. Since they were 11 years old they dreamed of being an MP, being the Prime Minister, and so they'll do A-Level Politics, Politics degree, get a job with an MP, work for a think tank, become an MP, Prime Minister. And my criticism is what life experiences do you have? The reason most MPs aren't popular is that people can see through that."

He makes up for it later, though, saying of Miliband that "I believe in him, I really do, he's a mate."
