In celebration of their special ’This Is Our England’ World Cup paper (which has 22 million free copies being distributed for free), The Sun has managed to persuade senior politicians to pose with today’s edition. Boris Johnson, David Cameron and Nick Clegg all managed to look normal. But Ed Miliband on the other hand…

Folks on Twitter have remarked how similar Ed’s pose is to a hostage photo. Unsurprisingly, parodies are beginning to circulate…

Mr Steerpike thinks it’s quite ironic this endorsement comes from the man who called prided himself on his anti-Murdoch credentials and once called for Rupert Murdoch’s empire to be dismantled. At least he’s staying true to his word when he says he doesn’t read the papers. In this picture, he’s only holding one.
