Ed Miliband

A former adviser to Gordon Brown in both opposition and government, Ed Miliband has been MP for Doncaster North since 2005.


He entered the cabinet as chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster in 2007, eventually becoming energy and climate change secretary. After the Labour Party's loss in the 2010 general election he was elected as its youngest-ever leader.
