Ed Miliband has dismissed suggestions he should be doing better as Labour leader, insisting that "the battle is on" for victory in next year's general election.
Mr Miliband told ITV News Political Editor Tom Bradby that after defeat in 2010 "people wrote us off" but now his party is "in a good position" to win in 2015.
He said the challenge for him and his rivals was to deal with the "huge discontent" people feel about their living standards.
