Labour Party Must Not Be Divided


 

hug-878787My thoughts of David Miliband Door Is Always Open For Return:

There has been a number of rumours of lately that the door will be open to big brother Miliband to replace Ed Balls because of the cockup that Balls made over the reply to the Chancellor. Before people start to ring my mobile, email, or fax me let me make it clear from the beginning that it’s load of of Pufi and not to be confused by the Chinese word for to reply officially to a subordinate. Reasons are that all the media would gladly entertain another rife between the brothers.

I think that big brother miliband did the right move by stepping aside so young miliband could establish his own brand to the party for him to lead us to the next general elections in 2015 I must admit that there is a lot of passions will be running very high I say to all sides of the party to exercise or throw caution to the wind at the moment and take it with a pinch of salt.

I make NO apologies for saying Yes I and many of party members did vote in the leadership contest I voted for the Big brother Miliband and I used my other votes in any democratic process I have friends from all the political spectrum of the Labour Party we all stand shoulder to shoulder to beat our common enemies the coalition.  Look at their track record of U-turns that this coalition has made since taking up government its thanks to our leadership of Labour Party.

Let’s look at the current leadership of our party and see what has been achieved so far since in opposition the leadership so far has made the right arguments in and out the house. We have had some success in Local Government and Police Crime Commissioner Elections. Young Miliband plans will be gearing up to win European Elections in 2014 and Council seats as a party we are all in it together (not to be confused by the Nasty Party mantra). I will continue to do my part for Labour by going out on the doorstep with thousands of other activists all over the country promoting Labour’s core values and yes to get out the vote on the day. I take leave by quoting United We Stand, Divided We Fall”.

David Miliband has mostly kept a low profile since his defeat in 2010

Ed Miliband has declared the “door is open” for his brother amid growing speculation that David could soon return to frontline politics.

The Labour leader’s comment came after his older brother delivered a passionate speech in the Commons attacking the Government’s “rancid” benefits cap.

His intervention during the welfare debate echoed criticisms made by Ed, who had accused David Cameron of leading a “divide and rule strategy”.

Westminster rumours that David Miliband could be handed the job of Shadow Chancellor have been fuelled by his brother refusing to guarantee Ed Balls will keep the role until 2015.

There are widespread claims that David has already been sounded out at least twice about taking up the post, which would see the two brothers working closer than ever before.

The Labour leader says time has healed the bitter rift sparked when he pipped his brother to the top job after Gordon Brown stood down in 2010.

Although the brothers did not spend Christmas Day together, their families did meet up over the holiday and exchanged presents.

Mr Miliband and his wife Justine gave David and his wife Louise some wine and “other gifts”, he told the Daily Mirror. The leader received a book on the Boston Red Sox.

“Of course it was a bruising leadership contest and as time goes on that sort of recedes and that’s good for our relationship,” he told the paper.

Asked about a return to the shadow cabinet for the former foreign secretary, he said it was up to him but that “the door is always open”.

EdballsMr Balls admitted before Christmas that he had not been assured he would be Chancellor after the next election in Labour wins.

And in his latest interview, Mr Miliband would only say: “I think Ed Balls is doing a great job but I am not going to get into that.

“It’s the measuring the curtains thing – you start naming your Cabinet two-and-a-half years before the election? Honestly.”

Mr Balls’ profile took a dent last month when he stumbled in his response to the Autumn Statement but replacing him with David could rock the Labour party.

It could also be very awkward because Mr Balls’ wife Yvette Cooper is shadow home secretary and regarded as one of the Opposition’s top performers.
