Ed Miliband: Coalition is 'practising the politics of division'

Ed Miliband has accused the coalition government of "practising the politics of division", comparing their approach to the "rotten politics of the 1980s".

The Labour leader told the People's Policy Forum in Nottingham that the coalition was "dividing" the country by pitting the middle class against the wealthy and the public against the private sector.

He also confirmed he would address an anti-cuts march in London on Saturday, expected to be the largest since the coalition was formed.
