David Miliband’s identity crisis

IT SURELY wouldn’t have happened if he’d beaten his brother in the Labour leadership election.

But yesterday David Miliband was mistaken by a travelling train companion for Andy Burnham, the shadow health secretary.

Miliband, tweeting about the incident, described it as the ultimate compliment. But The Capitalist can’t help but wonder whether Labour’s lost leader and director of Sunderland Football Club, wouldn’t rather be slightly more recognisable.
