The Daily Mirror's Kevin Maguire claimed many would have giggled at the idea of the Labour leader being on the road to Downing Street 12 months ago, but said few are laughing today.
He looked back at the highlights of Ed Miliband's year, as the party leader prepares to make his speech to the Labour conference in Manchester.
There was a film by George Parker on Nick Clegg's year for Liberal Democrat conference - and Tim Montgomerie will reflect on David Cameron's fortunes for Conservative conference next week.
