Addressing Labour's "people's policy forum" in Birmingham, Ed Miliband said he had the answers to Britain's current problems, telling the audience: "A lost decade is not inevitable."
"I don't just offer a change of management. I want to offer a change in the way this country is run and who it is run for," Mr Miliband said.
An investment in employment for the young, a "revolution" in the education system around vocational learning, regional banking systems and investment in homes were among the policy themes the Labour leader has outlined to the audience.
