There are a number of reports that beaten leadership contender, David Miliband, has left Manchester and is on his way back to London. There’s a strong suggestion that he hasn’t filled in his shadow cabinet papers which have to be in by 5pm tomorrow. If so then it would appear that he’s backing down from front-line politics.

The day must have been very challenging with the big story this evening being the comments he was seen to have made to Harriet Harman when she applauded his brother’s comments about Iraq being wrong.
