Miliband for leader?

Shields MP still favoured for Labour Leadership

Colin Brown, the Deputy Political Editor of The Independant appraises the results of Dr. John Reid's recent grabbing of the headlines in his column today.

Being rather sceptical of the "stunt" pulled over the alleged bombing plot (and not seeing any of the arrested appearing before the courts, and seeing most travelling restrictions have now been removed), as well as the comprehensive kick in the teeth for "two jags" Prescott, I am not surprised that some commentators agree that the Scottish bruiser has positioned himself nicely while his compatriot Gordon Brown was also on holiday. Colin Brown reports that a member of Labour's National Executive Committee said;

"Reid obviously sees himself as a potential challenger, but I think the danger for Gordon Brown is that the party will jump a generation to someone like David Miliband"

Yes, it's August, the kids are off school, half the country is away on holiday, the "silly season" is in full swing!
