And the winner of September's Foot in Mouth Award is....

...none other than Iain Dale's Dodgy Figures. In a rather smug posting entitled David Miliband's Dodgy Figures, Dale takes the boy Miliband to task for cocking up his figures on the Today programme in a piece about global warming. It then appears, having it pointed out that Miliband was correct, Dale didn't have the humility to accept it, but instead used a Greenpeace person to suggest Miliband had just made a verbal slip.

But that's just not good enough. As Omar points out, Miliband got it right, and Dale got it wrong, and what's more, Omar provides the broadcast to prove it!
