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?

    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.

    Israel has fallen into a Hamas trap

    Only 15% of Britons think Israeli air-strikes on Gaza are justified, according to polling by YouGov yesterday. In one sense this is surprising given that most of the British press has traditionally been stridently pro-Israeli. But it also says something about shifting attitudes towards Israel as pictures of dead Palestinian children start to dominate the news.

    Shadow Home Office Minister steps down

    Shadow Home Office Minister Helen Jones is stepping down from the front bench. The Warrington North MP “wanted to spend more time in her constituency” Labour sources said – although her letter to Miliband announcing her decision appears to lack a clear explanation (it’s only 46 words long).
