Standard snapper takes Miliband from Bananaman to porn-star

The last time the Evening Standard’s Jeremy Selwyn photographed David Miliband, in 2008, he persuaded the then foreign secretary to hold up a banana – providing the perfect image to accompany Gordon Brown’s “no time for a novice” party conference speech, which was interpreted at the time as a double attack on Tory leader David Cameron and those in his own party who would unseat him.

Now Selwyn has Miliband looking a bit like a very unconvincing porn star in a photoshoot for last night’s Standard. According to deputy political editor Paul Waugh, Miliband spotted a banana protruding from the jacket of two-time British Press Awards photographer of the year Selwyn and politely declined to recreate the 2008 pose.
