It was in the 1970's that the Australian selectors had to choose between the captaincy skills of brothers Greg and Ian Miliband. What a dilemma to have - both had awful moustaches, both were capable of scoring big runs and both were fine close to the wicket fielders. It was a close choice but it was Ian that won out and led the team to successive election victories.
A similar challenge has just faced the selectors of the Labour Party CC, forced to choose between David and Ed Chappell. Neither has a moustache, neither has scored a Test century and neither is noted for snaffling them up in the slips. Nothing to separate them. But Fantasy Bob understands that Ed has just won by the narrowest of margins and will lead his side in the coming test series against the Condems CC.
