The Curse of Sunderband

If his first couple of months as a football executive are anything to go by, part-time MP David Miliband might want not want to give up the day-job just yet. On February 1st the lamenting Labour loser joined the board of Sunderland Association Football Club.

There is a growing whispering campaign amongst the “black cats” that David has cursed the club with his personal losing touch. Turns out he does have something in common with Brown after all…
