I am one of the handful of people in possession of a letter from TV Licensing confirming that I do not need a licence because I don't have a TV.
I have a home cinema system but it isn't tuned to receive TV broadcasts; to me, this is simply part of mental hygiene.
So that is one reason why it is only today that browsing The Daily Telegraph website I came across a 2011 video clip which shows Mr Ed Miliband, Leader of the Labour Party, replying to a range of different questions from a TV interviewer with the same answer - almost word for word.
I obviously don't know what you can get away with on TV these days but I have to say Mr Miliband's behaviour in this clip strikes me as very odd. He seems to be suffering from some cognitive impairment.
Surely you cannot lead a political party which claims it could form a government (and with Mr Miliband as Prime Minister) if your Leader has got some kind of mental block which prevents him answering questions from an interviewer.
Have I missed something?
