If these comments are the best David Miliband has to offer (and they are the only comments in the article relevant to Labour’s election defeat), then he should stay where he is.
In comments that will add to speculation that he plans a return to British politics, Miliband said he was part of a Labour team that won elections rather than lost them. “I was in the backroom in the early 1990s when Labour in the UK figured out how to win elections rather than lose them,” he said. “As this month’s election in the UK showed, the electorate have recently sent us back to the classroom for the second time in five years.”
