The Milibands [Sep. 30th, 2010|09:57 am]
Tony Grist
The media have been reporting David Miliband's defeat as if being Blair's golden boy carried with it the right to succession- and he's been deprived of something he was entitled to (as if he were an exiled Stuart or something). Personally, never having liked the little creep- with his management-speak and his fuzziness on torture- I'm finding it hard to feel his pain. Ed Miliband's election represents a proper break with the Blair-Brown years. No more Nu-Labour. He may not have the chops to be anything more than an interim leader (who knows?) but at least he's not the continuity leader. Besides, it's good to feel that the party I still think of as my party (in spite of betrayals on both sides) is is being lead- at long last- by someone I don't regard as a war criminal.

Good comments on Ed. You made me realise why having Ed is a better thing than I first thought - getting away from those who supported the Iraq war is so necessary and important. I hope that he will really listen to the constituents of the labour party and those beyond it to give us a more human lead.

I knew it was you. :)

If I had had a vote I'd have voted for Diane, but Ed would have been my number two.
