Ed Miliband called on Theresa May to challenge Donald Trump on climate change during Prime Minister’s Questions [Image: PA].

To be honest, This Writer liked Ed Miliband when he was in charge of the Labour Party.

But he made too many big mistakes – major concessions to the virtually-Tory neoliberal right-whingers who practically neutered the party in the run-up to the 2015 general election. He’s no leader.

That is something we’ll all need to remember while his star is on the rise again. He had his chance. And he didn’t get behind Jeremy Corbyn, except to stab him in the back.

So let’s give praise where it’s due, by all means. But don’t let’s let it go too far.

‘Milifandom’ is again stirring. Articles have appeared deeming him “hot”. He has even won fans in the United States.

This revival of warm-feeling for Mr Miliband has rocketed over the last week largely due to his no-nonsense castigations of Donald Trump’s administration.

Ahead of Theresa May’s visit to the US, the former Labour leader called on the Prime Minister to challenge Mr Trump on climate change.

“Can I ask her to reassure us that she will say to the president that he must abide by and not withdraw from the Paris climate change treaty. And in case it is helpful, can she offer the services of UK scientists to convince the president that climate change is not a hoax invented by the Chinese?”
