The BBC’s political editor spoke to the former Labour leader about the ongoing Tory sleaze scandal and COP26 and in the interview, she described Mr Miliband as a Labour politician who also is “an expert in this field”.

She asked the MP to “sum up” the impact of COP26, and whether it would be “credible” for the summit to commit to reducing global warming.

Guido Fawkes noted Mr Miliband studied PPE at Oxford university and worked as a media researcher for Channel 4’s A Week in Politics before becoming a special adviser, and then a politician.
