Labour leader Ed Miliband will today launch his party's local election campaign.
He is expected to accuse the government of abandoning middle Britain in favour of the wealthy few.
"This is a Government that doesn't listen to squeezed middle families who work hard to make ends meet,
"A Government that doesn't listen to pensioners who have worked hard all their lives. And a Government that doesn't listen to young people who can only dream of working a tall.
"They have abandoned any pretence they can govern for the whole country. They have abandoned Middle Britain."
