This is what Ed Miliband said about leadership rumours

There are reports that two Labour MPs in the north-west this week raised doubts over Ed Miliband's leadership of the party to Parliamentary Labour Party (PLP) chairman Dave Watts.

Miliband, speaking on a visit to Northamptonshire, attempted to clear up the issue by saying:

Um, right.

This week a poll of polls put Labour at its lowest rating since the general election, making a hung parliament increasingly likely.
