LISTEN: David Miliband Doesn’t Rule Out Westminster Return

The moment nobody’s been waiting for may soon be upon us. Speaking to Andrew Marr on LBC last night, David Miliband couldn’t deny his intentions to make a political comeback.

MARR: I’m putting it to you that you will be back in Parliament by the time of the next election.

MILIBAND: Well, erm (SPLUTTERS) that’s NOT been decided.

As Andrew Marr concluded, “He didn’t say No.”

What with Labour’s position in the polls, Miliband has certainly picked his moment. Brother Ed must be delighted…

Mandelson: Momentum are Worse than Putin

Peter Mandelson recounts his dealings with Putin to Andrew Marr…

Peter Mandelson: He once turned to me and said, you know you are a very, very unpleasant person, Mr. Mandelson, and you’re obviously determined to inflict great harm on Russia, which we reject. All I was doing was negotiating a trade agreement.
Marr: I’ve had worse from Momentum.
Peter Mandelson: I’ve had since worse from Momentum. But he’s, he will just sort of make you feel you’ll try and put you onto the backfoot and make you feel uncomfortable. He will try to show you up in front of your colleagues. He will make you out to be, you know, the, you know, the last remaining obstacles in what could be a marvellous agreement. He will try everything.

LBC Confirms New Weekday Marr Show, Rob Burley Editor

Following Tuesday’s surprising announcement that Emily Maitlis and Jon Sopel were leaving the BBC to join LBC, the station has now revealed what’s in store for its other big signing: Tonight with Andrew Marr will air Monday to Thursday from 6pm to 7pm, with the first show set for 7th March. Global also announced ex-BBC politics editor Rob Burley will re-join Marr as his Executive Editor, confirming Guido’s scoop from January…

Speaking this morning, Marr said:

“I’ve always thought journalism is about breaking stories, ruffling feathers and having some fun on the way. My new LBC show, Tonight with Andrew Marr is perfectly timed at 6pm, the end of busy political days, and stuffed with great guests, and will do just that. Anyone wanting bland, safe, wearily predictable journalism is strongly advised to look elsewhere.”

Still no announcements made yet on who will permanently fill Marr’s old Sunday morning slot at the BBC…
