As if Miliband’s week couldn’t get any worse, ambitious Andy Burnham has just managed not one but two standing ovations in a very well-received speech in the Labour conference hall:
Good tub-thumping leadership bid speech by Andy Burnham, I mean oration on health reforms.

Ecstatic response for Andy Burnham neatly rounds off Ed Miliband's week from hell.

Andy Burnham got best reception of any shadow cabinet minister this week – true darling of the activists.

Mid speech standing ovation for Burnham. Haven’t been many of them for the Shadow Cabinet this week #lab14
