Brown v Miliband? The gloves start coming off

Having been controlled by a duopoly for the past 13 years, Labour should consider jumping a generation to free itself from the negative incumbency factor that will otherwise plague the new government’s future.

Frank Field MP, writing in The Guardian today.

His suggestion? Step forward, David Miliband.

It’s a strange time for Mr Field to write this. Under a week ago, Miliband made a silly comment about Gordon Brown on the BBC’s Question Time. It looked like a schoolboy error.

There’s clearly going to be a Blairite wing of the party who look to someone like Miliband to defeat Brown. But it’s not going to happen, and luckily David Miliband is clever enough to know this.

Frank Field should be too.

    Indeed. As much as I feel positive about Miliband, surely the best Blairite, I would be straight into the Brown campaign if he won.
