David Miliband: Labour further from power than any time in last 50 years

Labour under Jeremy Corbyn's leadership is further from power than any time in the last 50 years, David Miliband has said.

As Mr Corbyn made clear he is determined to continue as Labour leader despite a humiliating defeat in the Copeland by-election, Mr Miliband said he was “deeply concerned” about the party.

The currently US-based former foreign secretary also refused to rule out a future run for the Labour leadership although admitted a return to frontline politics was “hard to see” at present.
