It is clear to me that David Miliband is preparing the ground for a leadership bid. His appearance on Radio 2 today was notable for a number of reasons, including an apparent inability to remember the name of the Prime Minister!
The current situation shows the Labour Party in a very bad light. It’s members seem to have accepted the inevitable view that Gordon Brown has to go but seem to lack the courage to remove him openly and democratically. Most of the country agree that the Prime Minister needs to be replaced; not with another Labour Party stitch up, but with a General Election.
