Brown and others need to answer McBride claims

Damian McBride has returned to this conference a little bit like a bad smell.

I should say for the record that I never did any business with Damian McBride because I thought that his way of doing things was very very toxic right from the start.

I think there are certainly people who have questions to answer about it not least Gordon himself, who employed him for such a long time. Is it really fair to lay all of that at Ed Balls and Ed Milibands door?

I'm not sure, but what I would say with reasonable confidence is that I don't think that is going to change the atmosphere around them now.
