"He puts the oaf in dauphin" - another quote that characterises Labour's impending defeat?

What a terrible thing to say about the current Foreign Secretary! Not!

Loved this quote from Matthew D'Ancona's article in the Sunday Telegraph:

"Other than Geoff Hoon and Patricia Hewitt, who called on Wednesday for a leadership ballot, the chosen fall guy for last week's failed regicide has been David Miliband. "He puts the oaf in dauphin," as one of his Cabinet colleagues put it. And it was to Miliband that the Labour MP Eric Joyce was clearly referring on Thursday's Today programme when he said – devastatingly – that "there are one or two aristocrats at the top end of the Labour Party who think if they act coy, they may inherit the leadership of the party".

More please!
