Gordon Brown’s barnstorming speech in defence of the Union

17th September, 2014 1:23 pm

Gordon Brown’s speech this lunchtime has already been heaped with praise as ranking among his best – and it only finished an hour ago.

If you have thirteen minutes to spare today, watch this:

“When young men were injured in these wars, they didn’t look to each other and ask whether you were Scots or English; they came to each others’ aid because they were part of a common cause. And we not only won these wars together; we won the peace together. We built the health service together. We built the welfare state together. We will build the future together.

And what we have built together by sacrificing and sharing, let no narrow nationalism split asunder ever.”
