David Miliband is voters' choice for Labour leader, says poll
"David Miliband is seen overwhelmingly as the most effective alternative to David Cameron and the strongest candidate in the Labour leadership contest to serve as prime minister, according to an opinion poll among voters commissioned by his campaign.
"Amid signs of a tight race between the Miliband brothers, Ed today receives a boost when the Blackadder actor and veteran activist Tony Robinson endorses him as the most "radical" candidate.
"Robinson, a highly respected figure in the Labour party who topped the poll for elections to the National Executive Committee on three consecutive occasions, said: "Of all of the candidates, from the beginning of the hustings, Ed has clearly defined himself away from same old same old. He is the one who, from the beginning, was prepared to distance himself from Iraq, from ID cards, student loans. These are big things that matter to people.""
