Miliband: 'It won't be easy choices but there are different choices for the country'

Speaking at the TUC rally Ed Miliband has said; "it won't be easy choices, but they can be different choices. We can make different choices that put our young people back to work, that make our banks work for small businesses, that take real action on energy prices."

"I think what you see at this event today is a cross section of people from right across the country, who are worried about this government's approach."

Asked about a general strike Mr Miliband said, "I don't think that's the right thing to do and I don't think that's on the cards. I think what we need is a Labour government and that's what I'm going to be working for."
