Ed Miliband backs Corbyn as next Prime Minister


  1. John P Reid says:

    And williamHague backed IDS as next Tory leader…

  2. James Martin says:

    I still hope that at some point Ed will feel able to come back to a cabinet position, and while I had huge criticisms of some of his actions as leader (the calling the police over malicious and untrue allegations around Falkirk that led to Stevie Deans being sacked from Grangemouth for starters), it is clear in hindsight that he also did a good job in keeping some of the more rabid elements of the right in the PLP in check given how some of them have behaved since.

  3. David Ellis says:

    Milliband is encouraging the accommodations Corbyn has made with the New Labour establishment in the name of unity.

  4. Tony says:

    I think it was a great mistake of his to cave in to Labour’s nuclear mafia over Trident.

    Very disappointing after he had seemed to want to re-visit the issue. Didn’t do Labour any good did it?

  5. J.P. Craig-Weston says:

    By any sane criterion I can conceive of Miliband is certainly no socialist; he is essentially just yet another closet, (actually not so closet,) Tory, (but then how could any American educated, multi millionaire, property speculator he has a brother is also a multi millionaire merchant banker,) really be anything else and the same was true of most the labor front bench during the last election.

    Which is probably a very large part of why labor lost the election even against this massively unpopular Conservative government.

    No mean feat that.

  6. J.P. Craig-Weston says:

    My objection to Miliband is not so much that he’s rich, as that his fact makes him so emotionally and practically disconnected from the lives, issues and from the brutal reality of the abuses currently being heaped on the least well off for example, (particularly the poorly paid, those in abusive or insecure employment or the sick, disabled and unemployed,) as David Cameron; who famously didn’t even know the price of pint of milk.

    However well meaning someone like Miliband might be in principle, (and I question even that,) I completely fail to understand what someone so handicapped believes they have to say to rest of us, about anything.

    Like most modern career politicians he’s living on a completely different planet to vast majority of people in here the UK no less so than all the other rich Tories too many of whom are now in senior posts in the Labor party.

    Or so it seems to many of us.

  7. John P Reid says:

    Ed Miliband wouldn’t have been on The Katy Clark approved Black list of non JC supporters if he’d said this sooner, saying that, Ed is Jewish,so may well fall into the undesirables, of the Corbyn Labour Party.
