If the leader writer had bothered to read the paper's own article on the meeting, they would have already known the answer:
And if that doesn't count as "personally slapping down" McCluskey, then the actual statement from Miliband's spokesman should make clear that was exactly what he intends to do:
Ed warned about using overblown rhetoric about strikes in his conference speech and this is a case in point. The language and tone of Len McCluskey’s comments are wrong and unhelpful and Ed Miliband will be making that clear when he meets him in the near future.
Still, why bother with small things like accurately representing the leader of the Labour party when portraying him as a cartoon character is so much more amusing?
