Harman: 'Most people have never heard of McBride'

Harriet Harman has denied that the Labour Party conference is being overshadowed by Damian McBride's book.

Speaking to Daybreak, the Deputy Leader said that in fact most people have never heard of the former Labour spin doctor.

Harman also said that the sorts of practices McBride claims to have undertaken do not occur in today's Labour Party:

She said: "Ed Miliband doesn't do that sort of thing, and doesn't allow anybody who works for him to behave like that."
