Former Labour spin doctor Damian McBride has denied his controversial memoirs will damage the election ambitions of Ed Miliband, saying the party leader comes out well in his book Power Trip.
"I don't think this will make any difference to the way people vote at the next election," McBride told ITV's Daybreak, saying Miliband and shadow chancellor Ed Balls were "not involved" in any of his activities while he worked for Gordon Brown.
"I make no excuses for my behaviour and don't expect anyone else to," added McBride, who said he had operated in a political system that was "unacceptable" and "cut-throat".
