Blair: Miliband has shown 'real courage' over reform

Former Prime Minister and Labour leader Tony Blair has said Ed Miliband has shown "real courage" as a special conference is set to approve changes including the historic link between Labour and the unions.

Ed has shown real courage and leadership on this issue. It is a long overdue reform that as I said before, was something I should have done myself.

It puts individual people in touch with the Party and is a great way of showing how Labour can reconnect with the people of Britain.

– Tony Blair
