Medb Ruane: Sibling rivalry -- the natural competition that never ends

Noel Gallagher left Oasis in a thundercloud last August because he couldn't stomach his brother Liam. Fifteen years of making music together were definitely, not maybe, over.
Liam still wouldn't hold it together when (What's the Story) Morning Glory won best album of the last 30 years at this year's Brit Awards. But he picked the wrong man when he fought with Peter Kay, who'd done the hosting. Their insult-trading almost bested the legendary rows with Noel.
"What kind of love brings such contusions?" Bart and Lisa Simpson sang. Well, the sibling sort, epic stuff that starts in childhood and can last a life long. It's going to be a talking-point for as long as the British Labour Party leadership contest takes, because brothers David and Edward Miliband have decided to go head to head.
