Ed Milband used his interview with Russell Brand as a chance to bash his arch-enemy Rupert Murdoch. The Labour leader claimed that the media mogul is 'much less powerful than he used to be'. The disrespect is mutual: Murdoch has taken to Twitter to mock Miliband for queuing up to shake his hand at his annual summer party only days before he decided to play the Murdoch-slaying hard man.
Well, Mr S sees that Miliband will soon have a chance to feel the full weight of Murdoch's power as he has jetted into London ahead of next week's election.

Mr S will be intrigued to see how much power each of them exerts come 8 May.
