Ed Miliband just tore Rishi Sunak a new one and it’s a brutal, hugely entertaining watch
Two things stand out about Ed Miliband’s devastating 2-minute takedown of chancellor Rishi Sunak in the House of Commons today.
One was just how eloquent and damning he was about the government’s failure to do more to tackle the cost of living crisis.
But the other was just how much Miliband seemed to be enjoying himself. It’s two minutes very well spent, brutal and hugely entertaining at the same time.

And here are just a few of the things people were saying about it.
Ed Miliband is on fine form. He should have run for PM.

Miliband on Sunak:
“crypto has crashed and so has the chancellor….and how similar they are
“came out of nowhere, the value surged, looked like the future but it’s all turned out to be one giant ponzi scheme….”

Ed Miliband is on fire, my God I've never seen him so passionate, he's ripping Sunak and his party to shreds, with surgical precision he is putting the blame of the #CostOfLivingCrisis firmly where it belongs…

Ed Miliband tearing it up in the House. Gettin' 'em good and riled. Lucas piling in too. Sunak looks like he's had enough.

Ed Miliband just eviscerated Sunak and the Tories over cost of living, Sunak does not look happy. Always liked Miliband.
