David Miliband’s Advice For Labour

Marginally more welcome than an intervention from his brother in the Labour leadership race…

Miliband Snr told CNN last night:

“What I think is important for all of the candidates is to reflect on the very clear lessons of two devastating electoral defeats for the Labour Party in the last five years, that have come for a very clear reason.

And the reason is the that public have concluded that instead of building on the strengths and remedying the weaknesses of the Blair years, the party has turned the page backwards rather than turning the page forward.

So I think its the responsibility of all the candidates, to find again that combination of economic dynamism and social justice that defined the success of the Labour Party in the 1990s and early 2000s.”

That will be Liz then.

Miliband also said “leaving Europe would be like resigning from the world.”

From the man who resigned from Britain…

Quote of the Day

Andrea Leadsom told BBC Radio 4’s Today

“He’s made his views on Brexit on the record, and the problem with that of course is that the chair’s impartiality is absolutely essential. … He’s made his views known on Brexit… it’s a matter for him but nevertheless it’s a challenge and all colleagues need to form their own view of that.”
