Ed Miliband has sought to move the Labour Party on from Tony Blair's "mistakes", which has upset and annoyed some high-profile Blairites.

Charles Clarke, who served as Blair's home secretary and education secretary, told the Huffington Post UK's Mehdi Hasan today that Miliband had not "set out a clear statement of what Labour would actually do" to give voters a reason to back Labour and relied instead on an "assembly of odd policies like the electricity [price] freeze or whatever".

Blair himself has switched between warning Labour against becoming a "repository for people's anger" and praising Miliband for his "bold" plans to change the party's links with the trade unions.

How do the rest of Blair's supporters feel about the current Labour leader? HuffPost UK presents ten top Blairites, who are split down the middle over whether they are for or against Ed Miliband's leadership.
