Ed Miliband

I don't know much about Ed Miliband. I think he got the job because he wasn't Blair's candidate and he wasn't Brown's candidate. People inside the political arena (MPs, party members) don't seem to appreciate just how much those two gentlemen- and their tribes- are detested in the country at large. Roy Hattersley, in an article published this morning, acknowledges that one of the reasons he backed Ed is that "he looks and sounds like a human being".
