It's arguable that the Prime Minister Theresa May has taken on Milibandism.

Pledges to crack down on letting agent fees, promises to set limits on energy prices, which were dismissed as 'disastrous' by the Conservatives under David Cameron and his MPs, are now being adopted by Theresa May her MPs.

Miliband, who since standing down as leader in 2015 has become the sass king of Twitter, responded to May's misfortune with this:

Miliband is standing in Doncaster North for the Labour Party, and has been pictured by constituents mowing their lawn.

He's since retweeted the images of him mowing with his own captions.
