The extraordinary case of the wrong Miliband

imageIt seems that Moving to New York is replacing the Chiltern Hundreds as the place where resigning MPs go. First, Louise Mensch. Now, David Miliband.

It is remarkable for an MP to stand down with such suddenness. Presumably, he wants to get out of his brother’s hair.

Since Ed Miliband was elected Labour leader, David Miliband has made the odd speech in the Commons, each time showing remarkable skills of articulation, passion and intelligence. – Each time raising an unspoken banner saying “It should have been David”.

The one with the looks, the brains and the gift of the gab is moving to New York, while we’re left with the one with the adenoids.
