The Labour leader says David Cameron should have said from the outset that the Israeli incursion isn't going to help.

Speaking to Iain Dale on a first phone-in on LBC, he said: "I think he's in the wrong place on this.

"I agree with him on Hamas. Hamas is a terrible and disgusting organisation, but I think he should have said from the outset that this incursion from Israel into Gaza was not going to solve the problem.

"I feared it would lead to the loss of innocent lives. I feared it would not lead to Israel being more secure. It would make it more insecure.

"I think the terrible, appalling scenes that we've seen, particularly at the two UN schools, I think tragically vindicates that view.
