YOU MAY REMEMBER the Milifandom, an unlikely internet fandom devoted exclusively to former Labour leader Ed Miliband.

The fandom was started by 17-year-old Abby Tomlinson, who stated that she started the Milifandom to help combat the “distorted media portrayal of Ed” during the recent general election.

The movement was so popular that Miliband even thanked them in his resignation speech.

And today, Miliband got to meet the girl responsible for the whole thing.

And judging by the amount of selfies they took together, they got along swimmingly.

And fortunately, Tomlinson wasn’t left disappointed as she tweeted that Miliband managed to exceed her high expectations.
