David Miliband Refuses to Rule Out Return to Frontline Politics

Labour’s Blairite prince across the water David Miliband is back on the airwaves today talking about the migrant crisis from his cushy $450,000 a year charity job in New York. When asked the perennial centrist question – if he would consider returning to frontline British politics – the arch-Blairite gave a typically media-savvy evasive answer. Miliband Senior told Times Radio:

“I don’t want to get into the ruling in ruling out, but there’s a new generation and I want to see them doing well, not badly.”

However tempting a place on Starmer’s front bench might seem, Guido’s not sure David would take the pay cut…

Miliband: Hunt Cannot Afford to be Absent From Iran Crisis

The former Foreign Secretary warns that the current Foreign Secretary “cannot afford to be completely absent” from the world stage as the Iran crisis deepens. It’s not just Hunt, the ongoing Brexit/Tory psychodrama has completely distracted the whole UK media/political class from the increasingly serious events unfolding abroad…

David Miliband Admitted During Referendum That Brexit Means Leaving the Single Market

David Miliband is giving a speech this morning about how we should stay in the single market. On 9 May 2016, at the height of the referendum campaign, the same David Miliband told voters that voting to leave the EU would mean leaving the single market. This is from a Stronger In press release. He could not have been clearer:

“The admission by the Leave campaign that quitting the EU means quitting the single market has let the cat out of the bag: a vote to Leave would be an unprecedented act of economic self-harm.”

This really is the height of dishonesty from Miliband.

Milibands in Communication Breakdown


Double-jobbing Ed Miliband’s peak hypocritical stint as a radio presenter is finally drawing to a close. For the big set-piece on today’s show he managed to secure the time of his own brother David, who joined listeners live from New York. As with many a media moment Ed has been involved in, it all went wrong fairly quickly. The line kept dropping and David had to resort to a phone rather than broadcast quality connection. Ed finally cut the interview short, declaring “I’ll see you very soon“. Christmas if you’re lucky…

David Miliband Phoning Around Veteran Labour MPs

In the last 48 hours David Miliband has privately contacted at least one veteran moderate MP to ask if they might step down and grease his path back to parliament. The impression from one very senior Labour MP is that David has decided not to return at this election. He has until noon on Sunday to put in an application for a “safe” seat…
