David Miliband to headline Fabian Change the World conference
He gives some of the best and most nuanced speeches of any Cabinet Minister - his speech for us in his last job, as Environment Secretary, on the future of red-green politics was one of the most challenging ministerial speeches we have hosted.
I will be interested to see to what extent Miliband can make a strong pro-European argument in the speech.

This blog is about the new ideas which can create a 'new multilateralism' to tackle the global challenges we face.
