Psychologists have warned that Leader of the opposition, Ed Miliband's constant seeking of approval from Lib Dem voters could stem from a subconscious feeling of childhood rejection.
Fairly attractive TV psychologists Linda Papadopoulos has claimed that there may be a single bitter incident from the Labour Leaders past where his father was not there for him, an issue that has never been properly addressed, which has manifested itself in a desire to seek constant approval from the undecided, floating voters, and plain weird people who voted Lib Dem at the last general election.
"By watching Ed's body language when he is speaking, pleading, with Lib Dem voters, we can clearly just about notice the occasional shiver and nervous looking around" Papadopoulos recently blogged, "from such actions I can only conclude that he was left in the frozen aisle of a Bejam's Store at age 6 while his father had gone to take brother David to spend a penny. I sense a lost-ness in his eyes which can only stem from such a horrendous suppressed memory"
The claims, at first questioned, have been given more weight after it emerged that swarthy Dr Raj Persaud had also blogged, word for word, the exact same opinion only days later.
The UK Council of Psychologists has advised the Lib Dem voting community that should the Labour Leader approach them for approval that they firmly hold him, maintaining eye contact at all times, tell him he's safe now, ruffle his hair and give him a shiny ten pence piece and a friendly wink. Offical Government advice is to strike him whilst loudly whispering "you're such a disappointment, I've always loved your brother more".
No one from Bejam's has been found for comment on the matter but several Lib Dem voters from Oldham East, where Miliband was canvassing on behalf of successful candidate Debbie Abrahams have revealed that he "recoiled in horror when shown a pack of value fish-fingers".
