David Miliband: my brother and a return to old Labour
The former foreign secretary's intervention comes in a week when Ed Miliband has boasted of leading political debate after his successful calls for Stephen Hester, the chief executive of RBS, to forfeit his £1million bonus and for Fred Goodwin, his predecessor, to be stripped of his knighthood.
Despite his brother's jubilation, the older Miliband uses his first major statement since defeat in the 2010 leadership contest to warn that the party cannot afford to lose the support of the business community.
In an article in the New Statesman magazine, Mr Miliband urges the party to avoid returning to Old Labour thinking and not to be overly critical of Tony Blair's achievements in government.
