Ed Miliband has pleaded "guilty" to being a geek and boasted about being "brilliant" at a cult computer game.
The Labour leader was interviewed by Absolute Radio's Geoff Lloyd and revealed the last film to make him shed a tear was a tale of gay activists and striking miners. He said: "Pride is about the lesbian and gay community in London who go and help the miners in Wales and Justine and I watched it recently. I blubbed."
