Tony Blair has denied saying Labour leader Ed Miliband is too left wing to win the next General Election.
The former Labour prime minister told a magazine his party was "traditionally" defeated at the ballot box when presenting "traditional" left-wing policies against "traditional" right-wing opposition.
But Mr Blair took to Twitter to say the comments mis-represented his faith in Mr Miliband's ability to win the 2015 election, as ITV News Political Correspondent Emily Morgan reports.
Tony Blair says his comments about Ed Miliband's chances of winning a general election have been "mis-interpreted".
He had been seen as casting doubt on whether Labour can win the general election fighting on Ed Miliband's "traditional left-wing" platform.
The former prime minister's remarks, in which he acknowledged there was "obviously a difference" between his politics and those of the current leader, came as Mr Miliband appealed to voters ahead of May's poll by offering an economic recovery which "reaches your kitchen table".
