While I was waiting to hear Ed Milband's speech earlier today, I was seriously distracted by a macabre piece of news footage, in which a Polish lawyer shoots himself during a five minute break that he'd just requested.
And if that wasn't bizarre enough, he missed and, at the time of writing, is still alive (more on which HERE).
So anyone expecting to read about Miliband's 'relaunch' speech will, I'm afraid, have to wait...
Update, 11 January:
Injury 'not life-threatening' - interview from hospital bed HERE.
