D Mili quits the frontline…
Earlier today David Miliband put an end to speculation as to his political future. Now as a member of the left of Labour, I will go on record as saying I am sorry to see him go. David has had an extraordinary run at the top of Labour politics since 1997, both as an advisor and an MP. He was a competent Foreign Secretary, and can be an inspiring speaker. His relative youth means that his return to the frontline should not be a problem.
Unlike some of his supporters, he has decided that it is time to move on, and to give brother Ed his chance. I welcome his constructive attitude to the media pressure of the last few days, and wish him well.
NOW COULD ALL THE “NEW LABOUR” WHISPERERS PLEASE SHUT UP, AND UNITE BEHIND HIS BROTHER, SO WE CAN WIN IN 2015????
