    David Miliband will be making a statement later today about his future in politics.

    What do you think people? Would you favour a Miliband return? Given Dan Jarvis won't be running, I think he's a surer bet than Chuka, Andy or Yvette

    A political heavy weight that will make Labour a serious party again.

    He's too Blair-esque for my liking, but would genuinely get more votes than Ed sadly. I'm not sure why they'd go back to him though, his moment was 2010 kinda seems weak to go back on that.

    He seems to be quite well-like by centrist voters. I think Labour has to accept that however much we may have liked Ed's politics, we can only win elections from the centre and we need a leader who has broad appeal

    Dan Jarvis won't be standing, and so I think David is the only leader I can get excited about

    The Labour Party need to move on from the Blair years and have a party of fresh and new faces.

    He's ruled himself out of standing for Labour Party leadership. To be honest, I feel as though he was just a proxy for people to voice their distaste for Ed Miliband. In other words, people don't really care much for him, they just see him as the better of the two Milibands.

    Labour needs to revolutionise now, and that means bringing fresh faces to the forefront who have bold new ideas and can potentially win landslide results like Blair did in '97.

    I learned recently that in 2007 as Foreign Secretary he was responsible for closing the Foreign Office's library with its 500 years of historical documents and breaking up the collection.

    Symbolic of New Labour's vandalism of the nation, its traditions and its heritage as they sought to declare a multi-kulti Year Zero.
