Has to provide an alternative to cuts, not just say no

Ed Miliband must prevent Labour returning to a "comfort zone" in which it attacks all government cuts without providing a compelling alternative for Britain, Tony Blair has warned.

Amid deep concerns among his supporters that Miliband mistakenly believes that Britain is moving to the left, the former prime minister says Labour must remain firmly rooted in the centre ground.
