Guardian, yesterday, page 15: "Are the knives out for Ed Miliband?"

Guardian, yesterday, page 1: "David Miliband: the speech he would have given if he'd won"

Traditional values updated for a modern setting:
"I shall kvetch, kvetch and kvetch again to save the career party I love..."

Does anyone have any idea what is so great about this speech or why anyone should care? It just seems to be a lot of wet, muddled nice-cuts-not-nasty-cuts drivel.

No accident you adapting Gaitskell.
Gaitskell/Bevan. Benn/Healey. Blair/Brown.
Nothing like the golden oldies to get your foot tapping.

If you have a moment, open up iPlayer and have a listen to the start of yesterday's Westminster Hour. It features prize cunt James Forsyth of the Spectator, and may actually soften your heart slightly to Mili-D. According to Forsyth, he has two options. Either joining the shadow cabinet. Or quitting politics, emigration and possibly suicide. The first option would spawn a thriving new industry devoted to inflating differences of nuance into leadership bids.

The second option looks like his best bet.
To think, Catherine Ashton's job was his for the asking. Idiot.

By the way, Jamie. I'm worried this whole site may be an elaborate deception by an arab lesbian. Can you set my mind at rest?

They would have to be an arab lesbian with a Stoke City fixation.

Which would be a rare beast indeed, given we know the Middle Eastern LGBT community is pretty united behind Port Vale.

There's always someone having a worse time than yourself, that's what I say.

Well, that's my solidarity withdrawn.
