According to Press TV Furthermore, Miliband was cheered and applauded as he told the Labour Party conference in 2011 that he was not Miliband, but “I’m my own man.”

Wonder if they’ll correct it.  Or perhaps Iran’s Press TV really are as confused as we are.

‘Ed Miliband held secret talks with Blair’

Fri Mar 2, 2012 11:6AM GMT
New revelations point to British Labour leader Ed Miliband’s secret meetings with former British Prime Minister Tony Blair, despite Miliband’s assertion of “I’m not Tony Blair.”

Miliband has met with Blair four times to hold secret talks over the leadership of the Labour party, The Sun revealed on Thursday.

Miliband was elected as the leader of the Labour party because he distanced himself from the New Labour and criticized Blair for his warmongering policies and invading Iraq.

Furthermore, Miliband was cheered and applauded as he told the Labour Party conference in 2011 that he was not Miliband, but “I’m my own man.”

However, The Sun revealed that the two had held talks over the leadership of their party.

“They talked about the need for Labour to be in the centre ground of British politics,” the newspaper quoted a party source as saying.

The source also revealed to The Sun that the pair held at least one of their secret meetings in Miliband’s Westminster office.

The revelations come as the British Shadow Home Secretary, Yvette Cooper, said in an interview with The House Magazine that she thought the Labour party would soon have a female leader.
