Incidentally, and quickly I have noticed that a fair few people across the Labour Twitterverse trying to encourage Ed Miliband to stand. I am on record as liking the ideas of Ed Miliband very much. LabourList also carries a piece saying that John Cruddas is strongly hinting he will stand. I think together the two would represent something of a dream ticket and a potentially strong unifying force for the party – Cruddas would isolate the moderates that Ed can appeal too while in Cruddas, Miliband would have a running mate who can reach out and energise the grass-roots. Together they would be a potent force and I believe be very competent leaders of the party. So, how about it you two?
