Congratulations Mr Miliband

The title of this post would of course be suitable whichever brother won. Ed Miliband is at pains to point out that he is not a left wing throwback but wants to appeal to Middle England. If that is correct then the question has to be asked "why did the unions get behind him so strongly?" After all if they had wanted a centrist Leader why did they not back his elder brother who had the support of the majority of MPs and activists? All very mysterious, you might wonder what the unions will do when they find out that they have not got Red Ed but somehow we think they know exactly what they have bought and paid for.
