Ed Miliband: Labour's new Leader

Congratulations to the New Labour leader Ed Miliband

This was an extraordinary victory given that his brother David Miliband was ahead throughout the Labour leadership campaign and throughout the count until the last round. But won he has and richly deserved.

Labour members have made their choice. They want the party to move closer to it’s working class roots, and make a clear distinction from the coalition parties.

Our small organisation played an important non partisan role, not just by interviewing all the candidates, putting the questions that you wanted answered, but more importantly by urging Diane Abbot to run. There is no doubt that this indomitable campaigner radically changed the debate not just in terms of race and gender, but also on the key issue of immigration. In his acceptance speech the new leader applauded her inclusion stating that the party needed her voice.

In less than six months British politics has undergone the most dramatic change in a very short space of time. Our communities must play a key role with all the parties at every level.

But now lets congratulate a new young leader Ed Miliband.

Contratulations from OBV.

  1. Welldone Ed Miliband even though I don’t fancy your chances against David Cameron. Above all, I say welldone and thank you to Diane Abbott. Diane, you have written your name in history. The guts that you have shown in standing for the leadership of your party is remarkable. Thank you for that courage against all the overwhelming odds stacked solidly against you; which showed that Britain has a long way to go in harmonious and understanding race relations amongst its different races. You did not the leadership battle this time, but, your name is now engraved in stone. No one can ever take that from you. Long after Tony Blair, Gordon Brown, Ed Miliband and other Past Labour leaders are forgotten, you will still be remembered. GOD bless.

    Agree with you there, Yinka.
