David Miliband today said he was “incredibly proud” of his brother Ed who beat him in the race for the British Labour Party leadership.
With the shadow foreign secretary considering his future following Saturday’s narrow defeat he told the Labour Party conference he was “honoured and humbled” by the support he had received.
“Ed is a special person to me. Now he is a special person to you,” he told delegates in Manchester.
David Miliband has not yet revealed whether he will stand for election to serve in his younger brother’s Shadow Cabinet.
