Ed Miliband’s speech – just the One Nations, all 46 of them

4th October, 2012 1:51 pm

Ed Miliband said One Nation 46 times on Tuesday. The brilliant Alex Hern from the New Statesman has done a “supercut” – all the one nations in ninety seconds:

Do you think he thinks we’re One Nation?

  • Serbitar

    Some time in 2007 I remember Blair blathering in a similar fashion about his vision of Britain as a “young country” in a manner similar to and as meaninglessly as Ed Miliband’s latest “one nation” schtick. 

    History repeats itself.

    As did Blair and now does Miliband… 46 times no less!

    Repetitious mantra chanting from a leader like this is a tad too cultish for my liking.

    Unite might refuse to Burnham if he won’t commit to an anti-austerity message, reports suggest

    Andy Burnham has been pegged as the leadership candidate that the unions will back since he announced he was entering the contest. Although in terms of financial backing, Burnham has said he would rather unions gave their money directly to the party to help the rebuilding process instead of his campaign. However, it now seems that support for Burnham from one of the country’s biggest unions, Unite, isn’t as definite as has previously been said. The Telegraph (£) have reported […]

    Shadow Minister backs Liz Kendall to be Labour leader

    Ivan Lewis, Shadow Secretary of State for Northern Ireland, has announced that he’s backing Liz Kendall to be the next Labour leader.

    The Labour Party needs a peasants’ revolt, not a palace coup

    So we lost a General Election. Rather badly. I start with this uncomfortable observation as it seems already to have been brushed aside by many in the party delirious with the fever of electing a new Leader. The thinking of too many seems to be: “The previous Leader was weak or wrong on too many issues for the British electorate. All we need to do is find the right spearhead and everything will be fine”. Yet this is the most […]

    Labour must make the case for culture

    Over the next few weeks, for those of us in politics the hard work of another five years in opposition begins in earnest. A new programme of government legislation, a new agenda to shape and respond to, and the little matter of a leadership election to complete. But for many people outside of politics, the next few weeks are the start of a summer of UK cultural events; international music festivals such as Glastonbury and the BBC proms, a summer […]
