We reported last week that friends of David Miliband said that he still wants the top job and is "waiting for his brother to fail". It was a jolting reminder of the division and bitterness that lie beneath the surface. Labour optimists point out that, in contrast to 1979, the party has not fallen into civil war. Yet there is a deep divide between the Blairites and the Brownites, which began as a struggle between metaphorical brothers and ended as a family quarrel between real ones.
