Downing Street is considering offering David Miliband the post of British ambassador in Washington, the Guardian has learned.Incredible.
The former foreign secretary, still recovering from being beaten to the Labour leadership by his brother Ed, has the skills, contacts and abilities to make a success of the post, it is believed.
Thankfully, brother Ed is busy ensuring that Labour are totally unelectable.
Before the general election Miliband was in line to become the EU's chief foreign policy representative, but he rejected the posting to concentrate on making Labour electable.
The post instead went to Lady Ashton, the former leader of the Lords.
