Ed Miliband, former Labour Leader, Says He Would Like a Return to Front-Line Politics

Ed Miliband, the former Leader of the Labour Party, has said that he intends to stay in front-line politics and would be interested in a return to the front bench. Speaking to Nick Robinson, Miliband said that he was “still relatively young” and that was much still to be fought for in politics.

Miliband added:

“After I lost the election it was never really a serious thought in my mind that I would give it all up and go off and be an academic”.

Miliband had been rumoured to be seeking a return to the Shadow Cabinet, despite saying in 2016 about Jeremy Corbyn:

“I think a lot of what he stands for is very important for us going forward. But I’ve reluctantly reached a conclusion that his position is untenable”.
