Social media users recreate Miliband’s bacon breakfast in #JeSuisEd trend

We’ve survived the Milifandom, we’ve witnessed the rise of Cameronettes, we’ve endured the sniggers generated by the ITV’s #massdebate and we've tried to make sense of Miliband’s confounding interview with former comedian Russell Brand.

Now social media has raised the bar in a humourous backlash against conventional media sources such as Rupert Murdoch's News UK and the Daily Mail in defence of the Labour leader.

Masses of Twitter users have tweeted unflattering lunch selfies to support prime ministerial candidate Ed Miliband from attacks perpetrated by the right wing media on the eve of the 2015 general election going to ballot on Thursday.

The movement, which trended worldwide on Wednesday with the hashtag #JeSuisEd, was seemingly sparked by today’s (Wednesday 6 May) front cover of the Sun attacking Ed for THAT sarnie photo op rather than his party’s policy.

One user seemed to sum up the general sentiment.

The international community was quick to stand back in awe of the movement.
