Miliband Rejects EU Foreign Affairs Job

While Miliband's trip to Berlin suggests to some commentators that he's definitely up for the job of EU Foreign Minister, others over the water think the opposite is true.

Jean Quatremer, via his colleague Thomas Meyer, thinks that Miliband will renounce the offer, having been asked by Gordon Brown to stay with him to help him in the coming election. The truth, however, may be rather different. According to Quatremer, Labour party chiefs are planning a coup against Brown so that they can replace him with Miliband as a better candidate to offer the electorate.

Whatever the truth, either prospect is a bloody nightmare.
