Should we read anything into this on his opinion of the current Labour Party?

Bugger, spelling fail blush

Such a shame, I really wanted him to be leader. He'd make a great pm if only he could hang on in there.

Looks like he's leaving politics altogether.

What his creepy brother did to him was treacherous. Horrible little creep,and only where he is because of the trade unions.

Lotkinsgonecurly Tue 26-Mar-13 21:16:11

It does, I think he disillusioned with how things are and its more what he's not saying rather than what he is. He has always struck me as loyal labour supporter so is removing himself completely from the limelight.

Itoo think his brother is a creep.

Oh it's the brother I thought for a second there mr penguin had fallen on his sword.

Yeah. Well done Ed. You finally stepped out of the last vestiges of the shadow of your better looking, better presented and more considerate brother. You vile man.

I'm rather glad he has gone, one duplicitous double speaking Blairite down, more to go. Hopefully the Labour party will go onto purge itself of more new labour types.

Most of them have gone now. The Labour party is now firmly in the hands of Ed Balls and the Unions.

A marriage made in heaven. Roll on the 2015 election.

What disappointing news.
I'm a big fan of his and think the party will be much poorer without him. He's ferociously initelligent and a fantastic politician. Should've won the leadership race.

What a shame - he should have been leader

Disappointed thats hes gone but pleased for him as he was shafted by his brother and the unions, I think the Labour Party missed out with him, but I hope hes sucessful in America.
