Unfortunately Fernando Alonso isn't in the running to lead the Labour Party, and sorting out that organisation's problems will take a bit more than some fast tweaking by a talented team of mechanics.
It looks like whichever Milibrother has won will have had only a small margin over the other. That wouldn't matter if, as between Clegg & Huhne, there wasn't much between them on policy & strategy but Brother Dave offers a return to Blairite New Labour while Brother Ed offers a return to the 80s. If he wins, his union supporters will want their pound of flesh.
The tensions between those two factions, as we've seen for years, may dominate and paralyse Labour in the years to come.
The new leader will have a shadow cabinet of 19, almost a third of whom may be from 3 families: the Milibrothers, Yvette Cooper & Ed Balls & Harriet Harman as deputy leader & potentially her husband Jack Dromey.
It's all quite exciting - this last 24 hours of speculation that Ed has pipped his brother has been much more exciting than the 5 months of the contest.
