Ed Miliband 'a proud geek and Manic Miner expert'
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."
Asked about Jeremy Paxman's description of him as a "north London geek", Mr Miliband said: "I plead guilty to being a geek. I'm proud."
He also owned up to a "big passion" for the ZX Spectrum computer game Manic Miner.
