- The Brownites and Blairites differed from the beginning – one camp thinking that he should be portrayed as the smiling frontman for an extreme agenda and the other thinking he should be portrayed as a lightweight;

In this week’s Spectator, David Miliband has had another go. Britain’s most boring political blogger has attempted to offer an intellectual critique of Cameronism. I’ve read the article three times and still don’t understand it. His only consistently transparent trick is to misrepresent conservatism and then to attack it. If this is the best Labour can do then it’s very unimpressive.
