Ed Miliband: Public want answers not excuses from coalition

The government has run out of "excuses" for the "failure" of its economic policy, Ed Miliband has said.

The Labour leader told party activists in Essex that coalition policies had "blunted aspiration" and ministers were "standing up for the wrong people".

He called for action in Wednesday's Queen's Speech to cap energy and rail fare rises and reverse tax changes.

David Cameron and Nick Clegg are set to restate their commitment to economic stability at a joint event later.
