Ed Miliband: "We've got to earn your trust"

Ed Miliband said at present "Britain is run for the few not for the many."

Labour has to "earn" the public's trust if it is to return to power, Ed Miliband has said as he began his keynote speech at the Labour spring conference.

"This Government's failure makes people believe no-one can turn this around," he told the event in Birmingham.

As expected, Mr Miliband said support for a Conservative-led Coalition or full government threatened to bring Britain a "lost decade" in economic failure.

Miliband warns of 'lost decade'

Ed Miliband has accused David Cameron of condemning Britain to a lost "decade of decline" by sticking to his austerity plans. The Labour leader said his party had to earn people's votes rather than expect to gain from the Government's failings.
