Miliband and more

A round-up of some of the highlights from this week's New Statesman...

By Ben Davies

Don’t miss Jason Cowley’s in depth interview with Foreign Secretary David Miliband. Caricatured as über-Blairite and reviled by some of those close to the Prime Minister for the leadership challenge that never was, is he destined for the top job?

Michael Harvey meanwhile ponders the changes in British foreign policy post-Blair.

We’ve got Zoe Williams on how Michelle Obama flummoxed the press.

Jonathan Derbyshire profiles Philip Blond whose ‘Red Tory’ thesis is seen as a grave threat to Labour.

And economist Irwin Stelzer predicts how the new capitalism will operate post-squeeze.
