David Miliband is expected to announce later today that he will not stand for Shadow Cabinet under his brother Ed’s Leadership. What he will not tell you is the real story behind his decision. Luckily, Ms Cushion (investigative journalist extraordinaire) is on the case..
In a leaked (well hacked) email to his brother, David blames Twitter for his retirement. He says that as much as he loved being on the front bench, he can no longer live with himself for causing so much confusion on Twitter. He says that he even considered using his middle name Ivan but MSN voiced concerns. Twitter refused to rename their Direct Messages to Private as that would then force David Cameron to resign. Darn it..
