Er… whoops. David Miliband’s made a bit of a cock-up on Question Time, suggesting that Gordon Brown will be less popular than Tony Blair…
“I predict that when I come back on this programme in six months or a year’s time, people will be saying ‘wouldn’t it be great to have that Blair back because we can’t stand that Gordon Brown’.”
It’s a shame, because he’s a pretty decent politician and incredibly clever. He’d be a good foil to the Dour One.
But the odds on Miliband ever becoming Labour leader will have just taken a big knock. Silly billy.
