Why we’re backing the younger brother for the leadership of the Labour Party.
Tags: Ed Miliband David Miliband Labour leadership Ed Balls
Please remember that Mehdi Hasan is reporting the position taken by the New Statesman:
Mehdi Hasan's religion and Ed Miliband's (assumed) religion are irrelevant to the NS's concerted decision.
mohamadist twit Medhi Hassan endorses Jew for labour leader !!
This wont go down well at the local mosque, expect a fartwa or what ever its called.
Being a Labour voter, I would go for more mature David Milliband than Ed.
I'd like to point out that, whichever Miliband wins, according to the tin foil hat brigade it makes no difference. They're both just two faces of the same FABIAN CONSPIRACY FOR WORLD DOMINATION.
See: http://www.youtube.com/results?search_query=Miliband+Fabian&aq=f for assorted rants (or rather don't see them if you've got anything better to do.)

cogratulations Ed Miliband
Pah! Link was too long. For the lowdown on those evil Fabians, see: http://bit.ly/cOh7wu
He who has the youth has the future, I hope Ed wins. Imagine two party leaders both middle age white males and even worse, called David. What diveristy we have.
Good choice. I think those who criticise his appearance or speech are falling into the Tory mindset of preferring style over substance.
He dares to put forward ideas for which others would be ridiculed.
For example, (Guardian quote):-
"He proposes a high-pay commission to scrutinise 'corporate governance – the cosy cartels which award each other high pay'".
If he wins and can build a good team around him, then together Labour can put forward a bold agenda. With the right people, in the right jobs, they could land significant blows on the coalition cabinet amateurs(Osborne, May, Lansley, Pickles, Huhne, Gove, Warsi et al).
The others leadership candidates have too many flaws:-
David M - Too Blairite and too tainted by the Iraq war. Will never live down the banana photo.
Ed Balls - Too tainted by Gordon Brown's profligacy and PFI madness.
Diane Abbott - Lightweight, champagne socialist hypocrite
Andy Burnham - Good candidate too but lacks media support and is prone to waffle and indecisiveness.
Oh dear, Felix and Max C are back with idiotic comments that even stormfront would be ashamed of.
So what if Ed Miliband has Jewish heritage ? What difference does that make to the labour party, or british politics for that matter ?
So, that is the solution to the "knock-off handbag question" that has bedevilled Socialist politics for a century.
Somehow, me thinks Reginald is perhaps touched by delusions of grandeur. I have a certain picture of him, and it's far removed from Toffs and Top Hats, more like Alf Garnett in some crummy run down flat I'd say.
Another reason it doesn't matter if someone Jewish leads New Labour is that it doesn't matter who leads New Labour. This IS a dead parrot.
Of course Bruce -as Labour has now lost one election in the last four -it is obviously "bound" to be in the wilderness for a generation
