Is Ed Miliband ready to become prime minister?

Presenter

Ed Miliband was criticised by the press after his Labour conference speech on Tuesday. Is he a prime minister in waiting?

Ed Miliband was roasted by the press after his party conference speech in Manchester. I met him in Salford to try to find out whether he was a prime minister in waiting.

I asked him about Labour’s stance on whether Britain should begin air strikes in the middle east. But other than that, I wanted to know what he thought the greatest issue facing the next British government was.

He said that our country was too unequal, and only worked for a few rich people at the top. But yet again, he failed to mention the deficit.
