Haven’t had time to read Lord Mandelson’s weighty tome yet, but have had a quick glance in the index to tot up how many pages each of the Labour leadership contenders get mentioned on:
Diane Abbott 0 â€“ not a single reference to Dianne.
Ed Balls 41 â€“ yep Ed features pretty big.
Andy Burnham 1 â€“ Andy being brave enough to defend Gordon after Geoff Hoon and Patricia Hewitt’s infamous letter.
David Miliband 48 â€“ but out in front is Miliband major.
Ed Miliband 11 â€“ while Miliband minor gets fewer mentions.
