1. all compliments to Triskel for some excellent research

2. This isn't a political forum, so I'll pass on "Millibean", better known ss "Wallace", to quote himself. As for political melodeonistas, I nominate everyone's favourite tyrant, Idi Amin

I remember hearing that Ed Milliband was once booked to speak somewhere in this younger days, and his spot was listed as being provided by "The Ed Miller Band". Maybe this is the explanation....
