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.”

Labour activist in North West complains

“Everyone from HQ to activists seem to care far more about canvassing for Corbynites than the candidates who could actually win or who are at risk of losing.”
