    It now looks as if brother Ed is going to get the hot seat job.

    Thinking about how political you like to be Papa, I thought I might try a wee wind-up by reporting here that your favourite for the Labour Party leadership election, the younger brother, Ed Miliband now looks as if he might win.

    At the start of the race it seemed as if brother David might draw the fifty percent needed to get the job but now it is being reported all over the place that Ed has gone into the lead. Even the bookies are now putting Ed Miliband as the favourite for the job.

    As we are going to find out sometime this afternoon who has won, our waiting will soon be over.

    Here is an article that says as much:

    http://www.guardian.co.uk/politics/2010/sep/24/miliband-labour-leadership-result-johnson

    I too hope that Labour goes back to it's roots and tries to find a middle ground that does not include too many right wing ideas. I think that Ed Miliband is the man to do just that. At least I hope so.

    Keep on winding up my dear as you are doing it in the right way for me.

    It looks as if you, me and the bookies got it right as Ed Miliband DID win the leadership contest aginst his brother and the three others.

    I just love being a winner and getting it right so often ! Twisted Evil

    What a bum Twisted Evil ( just kidding Smile ).

    It was also interesting that brother David dropped out of the situation that might have forced comparisons with him and his brother. He will stay an MP but he is now not going to work in his brother's shadow cabinet.

    He probably did the right thing here as he knows that after the dust has settled he will be able to do a Mandelson and slip back into front-line politics later on.

    Yes Zath', and I think we will not have to wait too long before David is brought back in from the cold.

    ME, a wind-up-merchant ? Never ! Razz

    Mind you I do think that you respond better when people disagree with you.

    I think that you just love an argument and I canot imagine what it must be like to have to live with you. Twisted Evil

    Don't stick your tongue out at me young lady ! Wink

    And yes moi dear, I DO enjoy an argument as without a bit of argument in life most people's lives would get to be very boring.

    The wife seems to like living with me especially as she can just banish me to my study or my workshop if I start to annoy her. It seems that I regularly do as I spend an inordinately large amount of time in those places. Twisted Evil
