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

October 4, 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.

    Should Labour offer a referendum on the EU?

    The EU question has never been far from earshot in the build up to and subsequent fallout from the recent European elections. Many might well be sick of the arguments by now, but they are likely to come back with a vengeance as the general election draws nearer. The EU debate offers a chance for Labour to carve out a stance that separates them from the Conservatives as well as the Liberal Democrats. And if Labour were take a clear […]

    Salmond bests Darling – but the bully boy still can’t answer the basic questions

    So with only a few weeks to go until the biggest day in Scotland’s history, Alex Salmond was the victor in last night’s televised debate. He shouted, he hectored, he obfuscated. But the polls clearly showed he was the winner. Indeed, his victory was a clear cut one, whilst Darling’s previous victory was more marginal. Whether or not it will have an impact on the polls remains to be seen (early evidence suggests it won’t), but Salmond performed markedly better than […]

    Tories rely on millions from secretive clubs as membership plummets in marginals

    More than half of the money raised for the Tories in many of their key seats come from donations made by unincorporated associations – who do not have to declare where their money comes from. Since the last election, over £5.5million has been given to the Conservative Party from these private clubs and business groups. Harriet Harman will today highlight these figures in a speech in London, where she will point out that analysis of the Tories accounts shows that membership […]

    Labour’s successful summer (the story you won’t read in the papers)

    The story of this summer holiday season is one the media won’t be reporting because it doesn’t fit their narrative about Ed Miliband and Labour – that Labour had a good summer and used what is traditionally the political off-season to consolidate its position. Traditionally the summer is the “silly season” when the press are short of stories and seize on minor gaffes and squabbles to fill pages. The classic example of this is when John Prescott was left in charge […]

    Labour needs to take a serious look at UKIP’s manifesto

    UKIP are in the process of putting together a manifesto that is squarely targeted at disaffected Labour voters. In a number of constituencies Labour’s vote is tottering. If UKIP get their pitch right, it could be like giving a shaking ladder a firm kick. Normal people, to the extent they are aware them, consider manifestos as reading material on a par with phone books. And they are right. Especially when the people putting them together brutalise the English language with […]
