    Default David Milliband has a go at Harriet Harman

    Just on the news during Ed Milliband's speech when he said the war in Iraq was wrong.

    David sits through speech stony faced, conference claps, most of front bench don't, except Harriet Harmon. David snaps turns to her and says "What are you clapping for, you voted for it?" Alistair Darlings face behind is a peach. Unfortunately Harmon was just out of shot.

    Silly cow.

    I'll try and find a clip.

    Towards the end of this.

    I can't see brother David hanging around the Labour Party for very long.
    Thank you for the six thousand likes.

    Thanks, good to see a proper honest to god reaction from a politician for once.

    He must have been fit to burst.

    Didn't see her fake adoring smile in the earlier clip.

    That's awesome. Crabby David Miliband is awesome.

    Good to see proper values being promoted and pressed forward.

    It is intolerable that we, in this counrty of ours, do not place greater criticism on the gap that has emerged between rich and poor.

    Without being party political, Sinn Féin are the only party pressing that message forward in our country.

    If he'd acted more like this during the Labour leadership race and less like a wet plank he might have won. Quite startling to see the flash of steel here (dream on Hilary!).

    I thought David was toast the day he showed up in Manchester and said something to the rolling news channels about Alex Ferguson and winning teams and winning formations and all that aul bollox. Clearly hadn't the first clue what he was on about (he's an Arsenal fan apparantly lol) and sounded like a complete arse in fact. He also said something about getting the "train up here to Manchester" like it was an exotic FCO trip on the slow-boat to Zanzibar. It was all very Islington, very Blairite, very Mandelsonian. Oddly out of time.

    And now the dust has settled we can definitely say that that silly little banana episode was something from which he never quite recovered. I think he was embarrassed about it at the time, but I very much doubt he ever thought it would have serious long-term consequences. Turns out it did though.

    Ooh er!

    I think Hilary was about the only world leader Minibrain didn't p1ss off during his embarassing tenure as foreign secretary. But that, apparantly, had little to do with his political skills...
