Miliband: Labour 'never behaved like Hunt'

Mr Miliband will also mount a fresh attack on the Government in the wake of the latest revelations at the Leveson inquiry, accusing it of having "bent over backwards" to help Rupert Murdoch's media empire while Britain was sliding into a double-dip recession.

He will insist that Labour in office had never behaved like Culture Secretary Jeremy Hunt, who is accused of secretly assisting the Murdochs' bid for BSkyB.

The reason the Government has lost its way so badly in the last few weeks is because they've been revealed for who they are - a government that stands up for the rich and powerful.
