So, basically, as everyone predicted David resigned, he said he needs to "recharge his batteries" so will not be part of the shadow cabinet, David is playing this off as he needs to get away from front line politics (whilst staying as MP for his constituency) and Ed understand this although sad to see him go.
But this is politics, and as we know, politicians make money out of bullshit, (ironic I guess us bloggers make money out of their bullshit), anyway, Conservatives say the development "spoke volumes" about the direction Ed Miliband was taking Labour.
And, I find it easy to side with the Conservatives (for once) there are some instances it seems when David was unhappy with Ed's views on Labour.
One example was during the conference, Ed had just made a speech about how the Iraq war was bad and blamed the Blair administration, many of those cabinet members did not clap - apart from Harriet Harmen, to which David saw this, and pursued Harriet, asking why she was clapping?
She supposedly voted for him, etc etc.
Long story short, Ed trash talks people in the past, David was one of those people in the past.
= Butt hurt David.
And I have a feeling Ed will make Labour even more socialist, which, personally, I will detest.
We'll see, from personal view i find it difficult to see how Ed got into power with a strong enough mandate to claim rule, i.e.
- He won by 1%. Surely a re-vote or re-count would be needed.
- He got in by mass vote from the trade unions, so through powerful operations, they some what rigged who they wanted.
Well, as i said, we'll see how Lab get on
TL;DR David gets butt hurt Ed got power, Ed is making Labour more socialist
