Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Wouldn't a candidacy of the undead force Labour to finally distance itself from its disreputable past?

Isn't Labour still a pro-austerity party? They are more likely to want to distance themselves from gasp, um, Brown than from Blair.

Milliband is vaguely anti-austerity, pro-NHS, anti-cuts.

I'd say it depends on what the Tories are. Labour at the moment is the opposite of that.

Milliband is also an opportunist asshole.

Cameron defeated over EU budget cut - Yahoo! News UK

The Prime Minister has suffered a humiliating defeat in the Commons as the issue of Europe again split the Conservative Party.

MPs voted by 307 votes to 294, majority 13, in favour of a rebel Tory call for a real-terms cut in the European Union's budget.


At Prime Minister's Questions earlier, Mr Cameron clashed with Labour leader Ed Miliband ahead of the vote.

Mr Miliband accused him of "throwing in the towel" over a cut before the negotiations had even begun.
