Some intriguing suggestions reported by the BBC today, that ‘Environment Secretary David Miliband has been urged by a senior Labour MP (specifically, Frank Field) to challenge Chancellor Gordon Brown for the party leadership.’
I have no doubt that Miliband is playing a smart game, almost certainly with an eye on very high (if not the highest) office. He’s the one with a strong personal commitment to the ‘cutting edge’ stuff – blogs, wikis, and all that – as well as plenty of collaboration with the nation’s newsrooms. And I’m inclined to agree with Frank Field on one point, that Gordon Brown will look like the ‘old generation’ when/if he faces a (relatively) fresh-faced David Cameron at the next election. It’s too early for Miliband though… isn’t it? 😕

Definately too early for Miliband yet, Simon. But I’m fairly convinced he’s biding his time…
