Hazel Blears on 'wicked and malicious' Labour comments

Hazel Blears explains her "wicked and malicious" comments after claiming she was not referring to the Labour Party.

She explained to Andrew Neil that she had forgotten using the words, and then admitted she was talking about Labour, but declined to name any particular incidents.
