While Ed was delivering his speech, David was caught sitting in the front row with a stony-face. He got angry with party’s deputy leader Harriet Harman as she was applauding Ed.
You voted for it, why are you clapping?
, David 45, asked Harman.
Miss Harman was a bit astonished by this but hit him back cleverly, ‘I’m clapping because he is the leader, and as you know, I’m supporting him.’
Later David was seen nodding his head as Ed complained about the nickname he was given by some of his brother’s supporters ‘Forrest Gump’, after the dim-witted and innocent character in the Tom Hanks film.
