"

In an interview with the BBC, David Miliband explained the reasons, saying that it had been difficult "to admit that I could at best help the Labor Party by giving not only the space between the front bench and rear seat at Ed, but also between front bench and 3,000 miles away ".

Ed Miliband congratulated his brother, saying that the British policy would be "a poorer country" without David: "After talking to him a lot in recent months, I know how much he has thought about this before deciding to do it. accept the offer.I also know how excited he is with the potential of this job.
