Milliband Falls Flat
Am I the only person who thinks David Milliband now looks like a bit of a twerp? Surely, if he wanted to challenge for the leadership, he should have resigned and stood against Gordon Brown. He'd probably win - although he is so untested in front-line politics it is hard to say how he'd fare in an actual campaign. Instead, he expects the job of PM to fall into his lap. This week will be the first time most people have heard of him, and I suspect he hasn't come across as bold, decisive or brave. He's come across as someone who makes snide remarks, then goes off on holiday.
