Justine Miliband said she was "totally up for this fight", which is a good thing, because Vine, the wife of former education secretary Michael Gove, certainly gave no quarter.
She wrote: "Very rarely do I feel sorry for Ed Miliband, but seeing him standing there in his forlorn little kitchen, staring into the middle distance while sipping from a stripy blue-and-white mug, part of me wanted to rush home from work, sling some jolly painted crockery in a bag and head over there with a tin of home-made brownies."
She went on to write that with Miliband it was "Communist-style egalitarian lino or nothing", which improbably led to the conclusion:
And that is exactly what we will get if Ed wins the election. An austere, self-conscious, self-righteous and, ultimately, hypocritical society of socially engineered equals.
A Britain made in the image of that sad, self-consciously modest Miliband kitchen: bland, functional, humourless, cold and about as much fun to live in as a Communist era housing block in Minsk.
This might not actually be Ed and Justine Miliband's kitchen... because they have two in the same house.
