I agree with him - as a fomer jockey and bookmaker I can say that David Miliband's odds of 33-1 to be the next Labour PM are good value. Decision time soon for the Labour party - the centre ground or socialism again? The evidence against the left wingers is overwhelming, and the majority of Labour MPs do not want to accept it. In particular in the North East, where the Labour MPs are queueing up to support the far left candidates.
