Ed Miliband hailed electric cars and the positive impact they will have on the environment during an interview on ITV’s Good Morning Britain. However, the Shadow Business Secretary was left looking sheepish when Susanna Reid told him to practice what you preach” after it emerged he does not own an electric car.
Mr Miliband said: “I believe that climate action can create a better country but it is only going to happen with Government action.
“We are not seeing it at the moment, the Government needs to step up.”
Ms Reid asked: “I presume you have got [an electric car] one?”
The Labour MP replied: “I have not yet, it is a work in progress.”
Ms Reid said: “What? Practice what you preach.”
