Who is David Miliband?
I ask this as there does seem to be alot about him in the news. I know about as much about him though as I do about Kate Middleton.
There is his Miliblog and his No10 official history. Also I have read a few articles of the will-he-won't-he style in the Guardian opinion section and in the Speccie, for examples.
On policies such as economic there are his published Environmental views. These are an even madder set of ideas than Cameron has come up with!
I know nothing about him other than he is young, never had a real job, has only been in his job for 6 years and not all of them at senior level. I don't know what he would do in a war crisis, economic downturn, how he will sort the PFI mess and Pensions mess.
Maybe that is the point of a political leadership bid. However, I find it bewildering that we could possibly end up with him with him as PM in a few weeks. Give me even Gordon Brown over that (saying this only as I know he will be trounced in his first election) . Even as a Tory, look what happened last time this type of choise was made, John Major and his sorry excuse for a Government.
Maybe I am wrong, does anyone know who David Miliband is?
