David Miliband to go tomorrow

My day has been good to this point, it is getting better, any chance of sibling solidarity

There's some fairly decent circumstantial evidence out there that Miliband has said that he will not accept another post in the government if Brown attempts to move him from the FCO.

However, Purnell is a friend of his, and his actions might tempt Miliband to jump ship even without the possible FCO move, and without the 'I'm not going to run for leader' caveat in his case.

JAMES FORSYTH 10:28pm
The word on the street which I haven't confirmed is that David Miliband will go tomorrow.


The Coup is On

Yeeehaaa
Good bye, I hope the door doesn't hit you on the way out. Milliband is a cnut.
Sadly there is diddly squat chance of loosing his seat in South Shields, unless of course the cabinet dissenters all suddenly find the expenses star chamberfinds they have been to sirty on expenses and they get binned from the party

BBC is running a news-ticker (no link yet) saying that Nick Robinson has been told that Miliband isn't resigning. At least not tomorrow.

Rawnsley has just said the same. Could be a long night. Miliband bottled it last time, he reminds me of Portillo.
Well isn't that just it. Labour and Tory bottles,different shape but full of the same pish.

From the BBC News website:

Meanwhile the BBC understands Foreign Secretary David Miliband, who was touted as a possible challenger to Gordon Brown's leadership last year, does not intend to resign.

He said he did not agree with the decision of his friend, Mr Purnell.

See your point, but the Tories have never screwed the country over on this scale. Ever.
Possibly not in your lifetime, but do you really honestly want to give them that chance.

I'd give Leo Sayer a chance to fcuk us over before I'd give Gordon another go. Absolutely!

For me, the really important issues - the ones that could really destroy this country - are the economy, with which the Tories have a much better track record and civil liberties, which the Tories have said they will deal with.

I'm not their biggest fan, but I really don't think they'll screw up. Besides which, having seen Labour over the last few years I find it hard to believe that anyone could do worse.

Can you think of an alternative?

Because unless we set up the ARRSE Party, with Clarkson forced at bayonet-point to be PM and the sainted Joanna as Home Secretary, the Tories are the only game in town. :roll:

Like the man said: "I don't like it anymore than you do."
