In the Red Corner, Ed Miliband
Way back in 2010, Ed Miliband emerged from the shadow of his brother to win the leadership of the Labour party from former leader Gordon Brown. Dubbed ‘Red Ed’ he managed to win over the party with his more left-of-centre policies. It was a deliberate choice to turn away from the legacy of Tony Blair, whom many felt had drifted from Labour’s core principles. He also differed from Blair on the Iraq War in 2003, calling it a ‘tragic error’.
