No. 2369 - Return of the Ed

Section:

Ed Stone recreated in the grounds of Carphone Warehouse founder’s Leicestershire estate

 

Featured on Tuesday in SunNation and shared on Facebook by the paper’s new Westminster correspondent Harry Cole, the “notorious Ed Stone” is, it seems, alive and well. The £30,000 tablet, commissioned by Ed Miliband prior to his trouncing at the General Election, is now standing in the grounds of Nevill Holt Hall in Leicestershire – the home of David Ross, a Conservative donor and a co-founder of Carphone Warehouse.

Lord Ashcroft offered £100,000 for the original stone on 10th June

 

All, however, is not what it seems with the statue – Ross’ version is actually a replica but of it, a spokesman told SunNation: “It’s part of his private art collection”. Ed Miliband’s original version, however – despite a bid of £100,000 for it from Lord Ashcroft – remains shrouded in mystery and has yet to surface.

    1. Ed Miliband did not do enough to support Find Madeleine campaign whilst he had chance. I am very disappointed about that. Dear Gerry and Kate McCann need all of our support in their efforts to find their beloved daughter Madeleine and I really urge you to all to support Find Madeleine now, today, urgently. Find Madeleine.

    2. Gillian,Gillian,Gillian,I don’t know whether to laugh at your nativity or pity your stupidity. Either way it really is time you woke up and smelled the coffee,as our Transatlantic cousins say.

      • Learn some manners and get a real name. I am very annoyed that The Steeple Times allows people to post with pseudonyms. It is simply not right and it is not fair.

    3. If anyone should learn some manners it should be YOU Trott.The way you hijack every topic on here to harangue people for money for your idiotic cause is both annoying and quite frankly embarrassing. You are a nuisance and a bore of the first order and I’m very surprised Mr Steeples hasn’t barred you. Here’s an idea for you,why don’t you sell all your worldly goods,including your computer and give all the proceeds to your Dear Gerry and Kate. Then we won’t have to tolerate your idiotic ramblings ever again. Thank you so much.

    4. Gillian,Gillian,Gillian,I don’t know whether to laugh at your nativity or pity your stupidity. Either way it really is time you woke up and smelled the coffee,as our Transatlantic cousins say.
