Was it a surprise Ed Miliband stood as a candidate in the first place?

Following the Labour Leadership result, the Willesden and Brent Times contacted me for my thoughts on Ed Miliband being elected new leader of the Labour Party. They did not publish them, so the comments may as well go to use some place, so I have been publishing my responses to their questions on my blog.

Did you expect Ed to put himself forward after David Miliband had done?

I couldn’t see why not. I think it’s a strong testament to the talent that we have in the Party that we were able to field 5 really good candidates.
