Ed edges it

Gilmanton, NH: So Ed Miliband has just pipped his brother to his leadership of the Labour Party through vote transfers and support among members and trade unions.

Both the Milibands are policy wonks, but there is a view that Ed is better at relating to people on a human level.

Whether Ed's left leaning posture was a ploy to win the leadership election remains to be seen. However, if Labour thinks its future is mobilising its core vote rather than winning back aspirational voters, it may have made a mistake.
