Edward Samuel Miliband (born 24 December 1969) is a British politician who was the Leader of the Labour Party and Leader of the Opposition between 2010 and 2015. He has been the Member of Parliament (MP) for Doncaster North since 2005 and served in the Cabinet from 2007 to 2010 under Prime Minister Gordon Brown. Miliband is the son of Jewish immigrants, Belgian-born Marxist sociologist Ralph Miliband and Marion Kozak from Poland.
"The Conservatives have a plan to control immigration and build a system that puts the British people first."
“A country where people of different faiths and backgrounds rub shoulders together and build a common life. Where we are always stronger when we draw on the widest range of talents, perspectives and cultures. And I know immigration can benefit our country. But I also know for that to happen, there have to be proper controls on immigration."
Miliband, together with others, issued a warning regarding the upcomping "Brexit" referendum: "If Britain leaves Europe, our environment, our wildlife and our global habitat will be starved of investment, bereft of protections and denied the leadership it needs."
