David Miliband in Leeds

David Miliband visits Leeds.

It was Fabian's great pleasure to welcome the Rt Hon David Miliband MP to Leeds. Fabian and David visited various parts of the Leeds North East constituency and addressed it's diverse communities. They visited the Islamic Centre in Spencer Place, Chapeltown and the Marjorie and Arnold Ziff Community Centre in Moortown. Following these events Fabian chaired a meeting of over 100 Labour activists at Leeds Civic Hall.

Fabian is backing David in the contest for the Labour leadership. He said:

"I worked with David as Foreign Secretary for the last three years as part of my work as a member of the Foreign Affairs Committee. I can't imagine anybody better qualified to lead and take the Labour Party forward than David.

He has shown in the last couple of days that as well as being willing to listen to the Party he also has a distinctive vision which reflects the core values of the Party and will help it learn the lessons of the last election."
