Miliband X Factor: Brown Sugar, Just Around Midnight

Mischief in The Sunday Times as they report an alleged post-Marxist plot:

David Miliband is preparing to throw his hat into the ring in a leadership contest to “save new Labour” after the party’s disastrous defeat in last week’s Crewe & Nantwich by-election.
The foreign secretary has confided to friends that he is prepared to stand for the leadership if a critical mass of backbenchers turn against Gordon Brown.
He is discussing a strategy to position himself for the top job without personally engineering the prime minister’s downfall.

The Miliband fan club may have to dust off their prematurely aborted Digital Shrine. But then again, expect further cosying up from the young blade.
