Ed Miliband: I won't be Jeremy Corbyn's back-seat driver

Former Labour leader Ed Miliband has said Jeremy Corbyn would be suited to being Prime Minister. But Mr Miliband told the Today programme that he was adamant that he would not be a back-seat driver on Jeremy Corbyn's leadership.

He would not, however, be drawn on whether Mr Corbyn is likely to succeed where he failed by winning the next election.

“After my experience at the general election, predictions aren’t my thing,” he told presenter James Naughtie.
