Oh brother... IS David threat to Ed?
With David Miliband suddenly very visible in the media spotlight, William Hill have cut the odds of him succeeding his brother Ed as leader of the Labour party from 8/1 to 7/1 joint second favourite.
‘As anyone with a male sibling will know, brotherly love has its limits, although it may well be that David is just making himself more visible in order to protect Ed from criticism.But on the other hand he wouldn't be a true politician if he didn't still harbour his own hopes of high office' said Hill's spokesman Graham Sharpe.
Hills offer 6/4 that Ed Miliband does NOT lead Labour into the next General Election,1/ 2 that he DOES.
Next Labour leader: 6/4 Yvette Cooper; 7/1 J Murphy; D Miliband; 8 C Umanna; 12 D Alexander; 14 E Balls.
