Surrounded by a police protection unit and chauffeured in a ministerial Jaguar, you could be forgiven for thinking that David Miliband did not belong to the party which lost the election.
While his rivals for the Labour leadership pay for taxis and take trains, the bookmaker's favourite Mr Miliband is costing taxpayers thousands of pounds in security and transport costs.
