What’s David Miliband useful for?

Jamie Kenny on the usefulness of David Miliband:

It’s difficult to see what’s being got at with the Miliband candidacy. There’s a sort of existential absurdity to it, as though the government have acknowledged that they screwed up big style, and to make up for it are giving us a shoe tree, or a random collection of beer mats. And we’re just standing there looking at this thing thrust into our hands, this inert thing, this Miliband.

In fact, it’s hard to conceive of any problem for which the answer is David Miliband, unless for some reason you happen to have a David Miliband shaped hole in a connecting wall, or some other significant flat surface.
