Why Labour has chosen the right Miliband

No Labour party leader with an unabbreviated first name has won a general election since 1974 - Harold Wilson.  Since then, Mr Tony succeeded in '97, 2001 and 2005 while Michael, Neil, John and Gordon have all failed.  Jim presents a bit of a problem, but I'm sidestepping that.

I suppose that Balls or Burnham would have been in with a shout come 2015 too, while Ms Abbott would have joined the long list of losers too.
