Former Chancellor Alistair Darling has admitted his "fundamental disagreements" with Gordon Brown on economic policy undermined Labour at the last election. He told the Andrew Marr show that senior Labour politicians should have done more about Mr Brown's leadership.
Mr Darling said the "object lesson" for a government to "function properly" was the need for "complete unity at the top". His memoirs state that he met with David Miliband to discuss the possibility of removing Mr Brown from his position.
Mr Darling also criticised the Bank of England and its Governor, Sir Mervyn King, saying it "lacked anywhere near an adequate understanding of what was going on in the banking system" in 2008.
