Miliband commissions 'election pledges' stone for No.10

Ed Miliband has commissioned a giant stone inscription bearing Labour’s six election pledges that is set to be installed in the Downing Street Rose Garden if he becomes prime minister.

Labour say that the stone will symbolise Ed Miliband’s commitment to keep his pledges and rebuild trust in British politics.

Nick Clegg and David Cameron have helped erode trust in all political leaders by the way they broke promises on issues like tuition fees and immigration after the last election.

If I am prime minister, I will keep our stone in a place where we can see it every day as a reminder of our duty to keep Labour’s promises.
