Ed Miliband
- Favourite Briton.

Born on 24th of December 1969
British hero of the week September 27th 2010

He held various ministerial positions under Gordon Brown, and when the latter resigned after the 2010 election defeat Ed beat his brother David in the Labour Leadership contest. His performance in the 2015 general election campaign failed to inspire voters, making an Eton-educated millionaire somehow look more connected to the general public. He resigned the Labour leadership following Labourís defeat.
