IN his first conference speech Ed Miliband told his boring old skit about Oona King being too cool to hang around with him and his brother David when the three were all studying together at Haverstock School. Oona launched her doomed bid to become the Mayor of London at the Chalk Farm secondary, aka Labour’s Eton.
But how will she follow up being beaten to the nomination by Ken Livingstone?
Insider mutterings this week said the obvious choice would be an attempted return to the House of Commons – and as she loves her Camden heritage so much – what about Holborn and St Pancras where Frank Dobson admits he won’t go on and on and on?
But wait. Oona. Our MP? “Over several hundred dead bodies,” said one local councillor at conference. The queue, after all, has been forming for some time.
