Only two of Labour's putative leaders know when St George's Day is
By Jonathan Isaby
On Wednesday night Paul wrote about Channel Four's Labour leadership hustings and concisely concluded what each of the candidates was about.
This morning Adam Boulton of Sky News hosted a full hour and a half's debate between the quintet. None of them said anything particularly surprising or unexpected - lots of soundbites and platitiudes all round, basically. All quite uninspiring.
But one thing which Adam Boulton threw into the mix was to ask them a few questions to test their general knowledge and establish whether or not they are living in a Westminster bubble.
One of the questions was to ask when St George's Day is.
Shamefully, only two - David Miliband and Ed Balls - came up with the correct answer of April 23rd.
Miliband Jr, Burnham and Abbott all failed to get it right, with Abbott submitting the particularly pathetic (and completely incorrect) cop-out of "It's soon" on her paper.
