Given that Samantha Cameron and her sister Emily Sheffield have both forged successful careers of their own in varying fields, sibling rivalry is unlikely to have ever been an issue for the pair. This could explain why Samantha’s sister has taken offence over the manner in which Ed Miliband became leader of the Labour party.
After the Guardian‘s political editor Patrick Wintour tweeted that Ed Miliband had claimed David Cameron ‘will say anything and stop at nothing,’ Sheffield was quick to respond and remind people that Miliband ran against his brother for the leadership. The deputy editor of Vogue replied to Wintour’s tweet, claiming that Miliband must have been talking about himself, as ‘even his brother meant nothing’.
“@patrickwintour: Miliband on Cameron. “He will say anything and stop at nothing.” Talking about himself no? Even his brother meant nothing

David may mean ‘nothing’ to Ed, but he does at least mean something to Vogue and the magazine’s staff. They published a glossy feature about David Miliband earlier this year. Mr S suspects that Sam Cam’s sister is Team David both personally and professionally.
