Ed Miliband resigns as Labour leader


A devastated Ed Miliband resigned from the Labour party today, saying he was truly sorry for the scale of the party’s crushing defeat.

In an emotional speech, Miliband said it was time for someone else to take over as leader but called on the party to keep fighting, rather than give in to despair.

He said the party now needed an “open and honest debate” about the best way of rebuilding after the heavy losses, particularly to the Scottish National party.
