Ed goes to Tottenham...
Clare was certainly much more popular with the party's top brass way back in 2011. Following the Tottenham riots, she welcomed then-Labour leader Ed Miliband to the area, to show him some of the devastation.
Ed and his party disembarked the tube at Seven Sisters to be met by Kober and council dignitaries. Immediately Ed started to look around, wide-eyed, and empathised with them about the terrible post-riot wasteland he was confronted by.
The council leaders had to quietly tell him he hadn't yet got to the scene of the riots. All he could see was... well, Tottenham.
