    Miliband comes back fighting.

    Ed Miliband speech: Embattled Labour leader comes out fighting after failed coup

    Ed Miliband came out fighting today as he vowed that criticism of his performance would not divert him from Labour’s mission to make the country more equal.

    In a combative and passionate speech, Mr Miliband tried to draw a line under the unsuccessful attempt by some Labour MPs to force him to stand down as party leader. He put the spotlight on his party’s policies in a tacit acceptance that the Labour brand – rather than his credentials as a prime minister – offer the best of hope of victory at next May’s general election.

    Personally, I am not sure if that is going to be enough, as it now must be self-evident to Miliband that it is the core support that Labour has lost.

    This was first shown when so many traditional Labour supporters defected to the SNP vote during the Scottish referendum.

    He is going to have to offer an olive-branch to these lost supporters - both in Scotland and in the rest of the country - if he is ever going to beat the Tories at the 2015 election.

    It is certainly the left-wing bloc that are feeling let down by the party, and it is these ones that need to come back in large numbers if Miliband's election to the next Prime Minister is to come about.

    The Blairite shadow is still covering his attempts to appeal to this wing of the party and to the rest of the left-leaning voters in the country.

    I do think that he is a bit scared of making overtures to this section of society, as he is afraid that if he does he might lose a lot of the middle-England votes.

    He is actually caught firmly between a rock and a hard place here.

    He still has about five months to sort out this problem as he knows that it is the roots of the party that have the most votes.

    It will be interesting to see how he does in that few months to come.
