Ed Miliband came under fire in the BBC leaders’ debate for being too similar to Prime Minister David Cameron.
Nicola Sturgeon received applause when she said: “I don’t say there’s no difference between Ed Miliband and David Cameron – I say there’s not enough difference between Ed Miliband and David Cameron.”
The SNP leader urged voters not to replace the Tories with “Tory-light” Labour, and instead replace them with “something better”.
Miliband responded with, “There is a huge difference between me and David Cameron.”
He then went on to say that the a re-elected David Cameron was the “the real danger in this country”.
Plaid Cymru candidate Leanne Wood was the next to criticise the Labour party: “Labour are letting the Tories off the hook by committing to the Tories’ spending plans,” she said.
She then asked Miliband to hold an emergency bugdet “to reverse those spending cuts that are causing so much pain”.
The Labour leader was then hit by Natalie Bennett’s criticism, as she said:”We need to rebalance this society, you’re just holding things at the same kind of level.”
