Conservative brand still damaged despite economic recovery
Labour leader Ed Miliband has accused David Cameron of being a "weak and flailing Prime Minister".
Mr Miliband said: "What we now know is that while David Cameron has in public been opposing an energy price freeze, in private he has been pleading with the energy companies to get him off the hook.
"What Britain needs is Labour's strong, credible plan that we're publishing today to freeze energy prices until 2017 and reform a broken energy market so it properly works for business and families."
Ed Miliband is to reveal details of his proposals to reform the energy markets, in a pledge to end the energy "rip-off".
The Labour Leader will call for a tough new regulator, and an independent body tasked with planning new infrastructure and making sure the lights stay on.
Mr Miliband says the shake-up would be implemented during the 20-month price-freeze planned if Labour wins the general election.
Conservative Party chairman Grant Shapps has insisted Ed Miliband's response over the Co-operative Bank row was "ludicrous" and stepped up pressure on Labour over the merger deal with Britannia.
Mr Shapps told the BBC's Sunday Politics there were "conflicting reports" about how much the Labour leadership knew about former Co-op Bank boss Paul Flowers' past, which included him standing down as a Labour councillor after pornography was found on his computer.
He said, "Arguing about what they knew and when, I think there's a much bigger issue here. This morning you have got Ed Miliband saying 'we don't have to answer any of these questions', they are somehow all smears. This is ludicrous".
Labour has denied this, saying Mr Miliband and shadow chancellor Ed Balls did not know the reason why Flowers quit in 2011.
Education Secretary Michael Gove has accused Labour leader Ed Miliband of "coquettish reticence" when dealing with scandals involving his party.
Speaking on BBC One's Andrew Marr Show, he said that Labour had a tendency to "clam up":

One thing that I think is slightly sort of off is that Ed Miliband has been a great advocate of transparency, judge-led inquiries, all the rest of it, but whenever anyone asks questions about the Labour Party, then he has a sort of coquettish reticence.
Labour leader Ed Miliband has hit out at David Cameron for using the Paul Flowers scandal to attack his party's links to the Co-operative movement.
Writing in The Independent on Sunday, Mr Miliband said the Prime Minister "demeans his office" by resorting to a strategy of mud-slinging ahead of the 2015 General Election.
He claimed Mr Cameron had "hit a new low" at Prime Minister's Questions by using the Co-op Bank's near collapse and its former chairman's high-profile troubles to score political points, using a strategy of "fear and smear".
He said: "The public deserves better than the desperate attempts by the Tory party to score the cheapest political points, including ludicrous claims that Labour's historic links with the Co-op movement were the invention of Rev Flowers."
Labour Leader Ed Miliband says growing up with his Marxist father Ralph "wasn't Das Kapital round the breakfast table - I used to sneak off and watch Dallas."
He made the comments to Radio 4's Desert Island Discs.
Presenter Kirsty Young asked Mr Miliband how political his household was when he was a teenager.
He replied that he'd often "pipe up and say something about politics" to dinner guests and his father would defend him saying; "just because he's 14 doesn't mean he doesn't understand it".
Mr Miliband explained: "I went into politics partly because our parents welcomed us into the conversation.
"But it wasn't Das Kapital round the breakfast table - I used to sneak off and watch Dallas on the telly much to my dad's disapproval."
Labour Leader Ed Miliband has accused David Cameron of making "unjustified smears" over the scandal of former Co-op bank chairman Paul Flowers.
Mr Miliband said the Prime Minister was only interested in scoring "cheap political points" not sorting out the "serious situation" at the bank.
And he said if Mr Cameron was determined to "smear his way through the next 18 months" that it was "not what the British people expect of their Prime Minister".
Planning Minister Nick Boles had warned that the Tories will only win a general election outright by putting up some candidates under a separate liberal banner to woo younger voters.
The Labour leader seized on the comments to attack the Prime Minister during a heated Prime Minister's Questions.
Mr Miliband told the PM: "That is the truth and your close friend (Planning Minister Nick Boles) is right. He says this: 'There are many people who do not like the Tory party and don't trust their motives.'
"And he says the Prime Minister is not the man to reach them. What he is really saying is this Prime Minister is a loser."
