Don't Let Clegg Put You Off AV
Ed Miliband has urged people not to make the forthcoming referendum on voting reform for Westminster elections a referendum on Deputy Prime Minister Nick Clegg.
The Lib Dem leader is so unpopular he is now seen as a liability for the campaign. Mr Miliband said "I urge people to look beyond particular individuals, and vote in the national interest".
He was joined on the platform at Westminster Central Hall by Green Party leader Caroline Lucas, former Lib Dem leader Charles Kennedy and Lib Dem president Tim Farron.
