Should David Miliband have quit front-line politics?
David Miliband has announced he will quit front-line politics. Did he make the right decision?
He was pipped to Labour's leadership by just over 1% on Saturday by his brother Ed Miliband.
Ed Miliband earlier told the BBC that whatever he [David] decided Britain "hasn't heard the last" of him. "I think it's most important that he does the right thing for himself and his family."
What is your reaction? Would it have been difficult for David Miliband to stay? What does the future hold for David Miliband in front-line politics?
