ED Miliband has revealed that his father loved Britain but disliked David Miliband intensely.
Miliband said his father Ralph ‘never took’ to the family’s eldest son, regarding him as superficial and incapable of leading the Labour Party.
He added: “Dad always told me that I would be a much better leader than David no matter what anyone else said, or indeed, continues to say.
“When I was nine he sat me down and said to me ‘you, Ed, are the chosen one – David is what, in the future, will be known as a Blairite stooge’.
“He also said that I was much better looking.”
