Ed Miliband MP, Leader of the Labour Party, said in response to David Cameron walking away from cross-party talks on the Leveson proposals:

"David Cameron’s decision to walk away from the talks is an historic mistake.

"He has not just walked away from the talks, he has walked away from his own words.

"This is not a party political issue; this is about the national interest and we are going to reach out to all of the concerned people, obviously the Liberal Democrats, but also the Conservatives, to say let’s construct a workable solution that serves the interest of the victims.

"I still believe that we can do that on a cross-party basis. It may not involve David Cameron, but I’m afraid that is his choice."
