Miliband definitely weird, says cast of Room With a View

ED Miliband is a definitely an oddball, according to most of the people who were in Room With a View.

As Helena Bonham-Carter revealed that she thinks of David Cameron as her on-screen brother Freddy Honeychurch, Labour confirmed that Mr Miliband has been friends with rest of the Merchant-Ivory ensemble for more than 20 years.

But Julian Sands, who found fame as George Emerson, said: “You know how in Room With a View I play this total weirdo?

“Well, in real life Ed Miliband is a bit like that, except he can’t climb trees or play tennis.”

Meanhwile, Daniel Day Lewis disagreed, adding: “He’s more like my character, Cecil Vyse, poncing about like a total fanny.

“If you want to know what Ed Miliband is like away from the TV cameras, then imagine Cecil trying to kick a football.”

Dame Maggie Smith said: “He reminds me of my character, Cousin Charlotte, determined to interfere with everything and being permanently offended.”

And Simon Callow, who played the Reverend Mr Bebe, added: “Every time we go for our New Year’s Day walk Ed always wants me and Julian to join him for a naked splash fight in a freezing, filthy pond.

“How fucking weird is that?”

Ecclestone unveils Auschwitz grand prix

BERNIE Ecclestone has unveiled plans for a Formula One car pointing session through the grounds of Auschwitz.

The four foot-tall outrage perpetrator was given a boost after yesterday’s motorised spectacle in a human rights atrocity passed off without a hitch for anyone doesn’t live there.

Ecclestone said: “It will all be done very tastefully with the start lights in the shape of a menorah in tribute to fact the race is taking place during Passover.

“We won’t have the winners mount the podium and spray each other with champagne on the site of one of humanity’s greatest crimes as that would be tacky.

“Instead the drivers will have bronze, silver and gold stars sewn onto their jumpsuits. As long as the sponsors don’t mind.”

The race will be started by actor Ralph Fiennes firing a rifle from a balcony overlooking the starting grid while wearing a grimy vest and smoking a cigarette.

Meanwhile Ecclestone also wants to change the F1 rules so the cars can be lubricated with whale blubber and each race begins with the burning of the host country’s international aid budget.

He added: “If all goes well we’re looking at Jerusalem as a potential venue, provided we can drive straight through the Holy Sepulchre and get the Dome Of The Rock flattened to make way for a hot dog van.”
