Ed Milband attacks 'two nation culture' of Coalition

The Labour leader Ed Miliband has launched a scathing attack on the Coalition Government in his address to an anti-austerity rally in Hyde Park, London.

He said: "The culture of two nations runs right across this government. They cut taxes for millionaires and raise them for ordinary people".

He made a joke at the expense of the Chancellor George Osborne who "tries to travel first class on a standard class ticket" and described the Prime Minister as "weak and clueless".
