Ex-Foreign Secretary David Miliband has criticized his brother Ed’s leadership of the Labour Party, saying voters “did not want what was being offered”. He told that the leadership had allowed itself to be portrayed as “moving backwards”.

There was “absolutely no point” blaming voters for Labour’s defeat, he added. But Mr Miliband, who was beaten to the job of leader by his younger sibling in 2010, also said the two of them would “remain brothers for life”.

He ruled himself out of becoming the party’s next leader, although that would not be possible anyway as he is not an MP.
