Labour now accept the Coalition's NHS changes..
What an extraordinary afternoon for Mr Miliband. In a Q & A session with Labour supporters in Manchester this afternoon, he pledges to keep the Coalition's NHS changes.
You may remember the calls for a national strike, the promise of reversing the biggest changes in the NHS's history, the '3 months to save the NHS' hysteria and Andy Burnham's promise that the Health and Social Care Bill would hand the NHS over to the private sector.
Well it seems the hysteria was all for nothing. None of the changes are worth reversing. Labour have now decided to keep the changes, making Mr Miliband the most opportunistic Labour leader by some distance..
