Ed Miliband will apologise to this week’s Labour conference in Liverpool for being the party’s leader.
The move comes as a damming opinion poll in the Sun reveals just one in 20 voters think he is a ‘natural leader’, for which he apologises. Labour activists say that until Miliband says sorry for being elected Labour leader, voters won’t take the party seriously.
Mr Miliband is also expected to apologise for being Ed Miliband and for not being David Miliband.
But the Tories have already dismissed Mr Miliband’s apology.
‘This is just a cynical ploy by Miliband to distance himself from himself,’ a Downing Street spokesman said.
