Perhaps it would be a surprising return. Predictably, some saw it as an opportunity for mirth.
Jeremy Corbyn and Ed Miliband [were set to] hit the campaign trail together today as they champion the leadership the EU has shown on tackling climate change – and warn that a vote to leave would put recent progress “at risk”.
It is the first public appearance that former leader Miliband has made with his successor, and comes in a week in which rumours circulated that Corbyn was trying to coax him back into the Shadow Cabinet.
During last year’s leadership contest, Corbyn praised Miliband’s time as Energy and Climate Change Secretary in the last Labour Government, and said he would welcome the Doncaster MP returning to the shadow role in his own frontbench team.
Today’s joint campaign stop will do little to dampen speculation around what many still regard would be a surprising return.
