So the Former Foreign Secretary, and a pretty poor one at that, has decided to quit the Labour front bench and the media goes over the top about it. I say poor. Let us not forget that apart from getting it wrong on torture, this was the Foreign Secretary who decided to travel to New York to pick up a foster child instead of greeting the King of Saudi Arabia on his arrival in the UK. Funny thing is while one Miliband says he is too busy with his job to register himself as the father of his son, the other says he is too busy building his family to attend to one of the most important functions of his job.
Still, now that he is gone it seems that whoever gave him is place at Oxford on the back of 3 B's and a D has deprived some more deserving candidate. You really have to work hard at it to get less than an A at A Level, to fail to get one A grade in 4 A Levels requires true mediocrity.
