Ed Miliband MP, Leader of the Labour Party, said following the Greek election results:

"There is a danger that there is now complacency after these election results. And I'm afraid the Prime Minister is part of that complacency because he is only offering more of the same.

"That is why David Cameron is part of the problem not the solution because all he offers is austerity which isn't working. Austerity which has caused a double dip recession here in Britain, austerity which is not working internationally either.

"If I was Prime Minister, I would be going to the G20 meeting of international leaders and arguing for a decisive shift towards jobs and growth. It's what we need for our communities, it's what we need across the world and it's what we need to get the deficit down."
