A shifty Leftist; British Labour party leader can't even PRETEND compassion convincingly
No eye contact; no sympathetic word; an obvious discomfort at being anywhere near the poor
The Princess Royal shows how it should be done
Ed Miliband has been accused of looking "awkward" and “terrified” while giving money to woman begging on the street.
Labour were forced to deny that Mr Miliband had given the woman who, was sitting on a pile on newspapers on a Manchester street, just 2 pence. A spokesman for the party said he had given the woman a "handful" of coins although critics on Twitter were unconvinced.
In July Mr Miliband made a high profile speech in which he said he will turn his back on photo opportunities and focus on the issues.
However during a Friday walkabout in Manchester, flanked by photographers, the Labour leader paused briefly to donate to the woman.
The speed he completed the transaction and the uncomfortable look on his face drew immediate criticism.
