Foriegn Secretary calls David Miliband a "Human Sacrifice"

FOREIGN Secretary Margaret Beckett has 'warned' that David Miliband would be offering himself up as a “human sacrifice” if he stood in a Labour leadership battle. When addressing speculation about the minister challenging Gordon Brown Beckett added that Miliband was a “very good minister” as Secretary for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs but the though of challenging Brown was," complete nonsense."She continued saying that “He is very bright. He is a very good minister. I am sure he will be a major figure in the party for a long time to come and a major contender at some time in the future.“But should he take this step to satisfy someone else’s prejudices? He would be daft,” she added. Obvousely not to Beckett but to several others Miliband has been considered to be a candidate who would appeal to supporters of Prime Minister Tony Blair. Any supporters Mr. Blair has left apart from Lord Cashpoint, that is. Although I hear through the grapevine that Lord "Cashpoint" Levy in none to happy with Mr Blair at the moment. I wouldn't be either if I was being made to take the fall when Mr Blair was obviouely complicit! Good Luck to the lucky winner who get to take over this Government ... Its an uphill battle!
