" Hell yes " to quote the great man

I appreciate that

Miliband attended Featherbank Infant School in Horsforth between 1974 and 1977, during which time he became a fan of Leeds United.[8] (Wikipedia)

Ed returns to his old school. [Link]

It is also defined as growing into an older child. Something you will still be experiencing.

Just for interest

Some research from 2018

[Link]

The percentage of MPs elected within their region of birth in 2015 was 47% (up from 44%), increasing to 74% if adjacent regions are included

The percentage of local MPs for Labour (51%) was much greater than for the Conservatives (35%), despite its major losses of Scottish seats. Seats considered safe at the 2010 general election, saw local MPs representing only 17% of the Conservatives’ top 100 safest seats and 22% for their top 150 seats. By contrast, 45% of all other Conservative seats involved a local politician. The respective figures for Labour were 58%, 54%, and 47%.

In this case it is a grey area as to what the term growing up means.

I am certainly prepared to acknowledge the Wiki entry is incomplete.

That being said, I still think he is a twot and the absolute personification of the North London elite.

Being the son of a good old socialist he did a sterling job of taking advantage of loophole to avoid inheritance tax, then again, many MPs of all sides did dodgy stuff regarding expenses on properties.

A lie will travel half way around the world before the truth has got it's shoes on.

When conceited septuagenarians opine , best to ignore.

You will note my quote came from Wikipedia. I believe you did not read the full page.

This may also be relevant from a firm of Chartered Accountants.

In our opinion, this is a routine method of tax planning, using the rules as they were intended in order to reduce your tax liability.

It's all semantics, am moving my focus to the PV presser.

I seldom read the references under a wiki page as I expect the salient facts to be in the main article but certainly the school reference is there.

Certainly in rhyming slang he has never stopped being a Featherbanker

Ed Miliband doing an effective job on the budget at short notice, we hope Sir Keir will be well soon.

Sunak is a economic dunce stripping out all demand and stoking inflation at the same time.

Expecting increases in interest rates hardship and mounting problems for the UK, but not affecting Sunaks rich pals.

Over 10 years since the tories and they haven't learnt a thing, increasing the dose when we know the medecine does not work.

Pathetic, absolutely pathetic. You made what amounted to a ridiculous point and rather than actually say “appreciate it stretches the definition a bit” and showing a little bit of good humoured self-deprecation you insisted upon an apology.

Please don’t think you must feel any pity for me. Personally I don’t see the pathos in what I wrote.

Why not focus on how many senior politicians aren’t linked by history to their constituencies and are simple ‘plants’. I feel sympathy for their constituents who were given a pig in a poke.
