'Miliband was so distraught that he shut himself in his hotel room, where a series of people, including his wife, Justine, joined him and tried to offer some reassurance – pointing out that the omission had not featured prominently in the BBC political editor Nick Robinson's report on the Six O'Clock News.'

The undoing of Ed Miliband – and how Labour lost the election by Patrick Wintour in The Guardian
This Guardian piece http://www.theguardian.com/politics/2015/jun/03/undoing-of-ed-miliband-and-how-labour-lost-election is a must read. Especially enjoyable is the pain it reveals on election night.
However what struck me hardest was this piece following Ed Miliband 'forgetting' to mention the deficit in a key speech:
How helpful of the BBC to not feature this omission prominently. How helpful of a BBC that did its best to try and get a Labour government elected.
