Labour election guru red-faced over misspelling Ed Miliband’s name
David Axelrod also signs up to spoof Milliband Twitter account as some ask if gaffe was revenge for Labour calling him Alexrod.
Labour’s new election guru has discovered his first mission: learning to spell the party leader’s name.
David Axelrod met Ed Miliband and a shadow cabinet meeting on Thursday after being brought in to improve Labour’s prospects in the 2015 general election.
Th e former aide to Barack Obama was left red-faced, however, after spelling his new client’s name as “Milliband” in a Twitter post.
He may also have been shocked when he signed up to Miliband’s own feed to find posts announcing the that the opposition leader was resigning.
The account being Axelrod had chosen to follow is a spoof that uses the same incorrect spelling.
