Ed Miliband to attend TUC march
Ed Miliband will attend a trade union march in London next month, he has confirmed.
At a Q&A at the Labour party conference Mr Miliband said he would attend the TUC A Future that Works demonstration in London on 20th October.
There was also potential embarassment for the Labour leader after it was revealed his language about "predators" taking over British companies was borrowed directly from a policy paper by Neil Kinnock in 1989.
“We shall reverse the burden of proof so that the predator must show that that the takeover is positively in the public interest,” Mr Kinnock wrote in Labour's tenth year out of power.
Speaking a day after a well-received keynote speech Mr Miliband.said communities around Britain were too set on toppling the Coalition government allow Labour to fall into infighting.
“I think this party has bucked the historical trend so far. Think about Labour oppositions of the past. By this stage of the parliament we’d have turned inwards, taken our leave of the electorate … that is the historical pattern, that is what people expected."
