    Seems to lack a bit of class so soon afterwards but eh.

    Article tl'dr: Blair or bust, Ed too red.

    I watch the entire interview with David Miliband and he said nothing. It was a typical political system interview. Far from savaging Ed, he just blathered on in a generic way.

    Tbf you can compliment someone handling a difficult situation but still critique their election campaign approach.

    I'd say Farage handled quite a few of the aggressive protests against him pretty well, but I don't support the guy.

    Guess I just think he should have kept his views to himself for now, but hey ho.

    I don't disagree with you. The media go crazy over David vs. Ed.

    Aye lol, was interesting that he didn't really answer the potential of him coming back as a candidate to lead the party some day, just said no to the next election, though I can't really see him having a go in 10+ years.
