Conservative Co-Chairman Sayeeda Warsi has congratulated Ed Miliband on narrowly winning the Labour leadership election.

She called on the new leader to recognise his role in creating the financial mess that Britain is now in and tell us what he'd do to fix it.

Sayeeda said, "For the past five months, all we've heard from Labour is knee-jerk opposition, now's the time for Mr Miliband to tell us how he'd cut the deficit. He promised us a Labour spending plan before the spending review, now we'd all like to see it.

And she added, "Ed Miliband wasn't the choice of his MPs, wasn't the choice of Labour Party members but was put in to power by union votes. I'm afraid this looks like a great leap backwards for the Labour Party."
