Tony Blair says his comments about Ed Miliband's chances of winning a general election have been "mis-interpreted".
TB: "My remarks have been mis-interpreted, I fully support Ed and my party and expect a Labour victory in the election."
He had been seen as casting doubt on whether Labour can win the general election fighting on Ed Miliband's "traditional left-wing" platform.
The former prime minister's remarks, in which he acknowledged there was "obviously a difference" between his politics and those of the current leader, came as Mr Miliband appealed to voters ahead of May's poll by offering an economic recovery which "reaches your kitchen table".
