    If we are meant to be “One Nation” (like Ed said), why was every other speech at conference spent slagging off people that disagreed with Labour?

      It’s like their diversity. It doesn’t include the diversity of dissent from left-wing conformism.

      What Ed really means is not a “One Nation” state but a “One Party” state. Blair said that New Labour was nothing less than the political wing of the British people as a whole and then demonstrated this by politicising the civil service, the police and our laws. You can be part of Ed’s “One Nation” if you are a lefty, believe in lefty things and conform to lefty notions of right and wrong – otherwise you are far-right loon whose views are “unacceptable” and need to be re-constructed by smarmy little shits who write for the Guardian.

      But what is so evident is the way this most recent re-invention of Labour hubris has been generally applauded and accepted by the supine, left-leaning media and especially the BBC. Compare and contrast with Cameron’s “Big Society” and the tidal wave of resistance, scepticism and criticism that greeted that big idea. The same Labour gang, two years after a long thirteen year reign with an empowering majority are proposing to re-build Britain and re-invent themselves as though that recent past belongs somewhere else, long ago and in a galaxy far away. They act like they have just arrived and the Tories have been oppressing the peasants for decades. And the media swallow the charade instead of pointing and laughing at the fools.

      Britain must need and want a socialist government, for whatever reason, or this bunch of charlatans and chancers would have been torn to shreds.

      The US Pledge of Allegiance says:

      “…[O]ne nation, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all.”– as originally written by Francis Bellamy, 1892.

      Maybe Ed fondly remembers reciting me every morning before class when he lived in Boston as a child; Francis Bellamy was a “limousine leftie” too, which couldn’t hurt in Ed’s view of life.

    BUT WHICH ONE?
    A nation may refer to a community of people who share a common language, culture, ethnicity, descent, or history.[1] In this definition, a nation has no physical borders. However, it can also refer to people who share a common territory and government (for example the inhabitants of a sovereign state) irrespective of their ethnic make-up.[2][3] The word nation can more specifically refer to people of North American Indians, such as the Cherokee Nation that prefer this term over the contested term tribe.[1

    Is this true, that boundary changes won’t happen? If it is then Labour will win the next election, and we’ll still have too many MPs.

    This on LabourList 14 Sep –
    “The Tories have now followed Labour and the Lib Dems in beginning to select candidates on the basis of existing boundaries, rather than the hypothetical boundaries that they were seeking to implement with boundary changes/a reduction in the number of MPs, reports ConHome.

    Although Grant Shapps denies this, that’s clearly a tacit acceptance that Cameron has given up on getting boundary changes through the commons, with all that entails for the next election.”

    If it is true that the Tories have given up on bringing in fairer constituency boundaries, and on reducing the number of MPs, then they have already lost the next election.

    Further failure to reform the corrupt postal-voting system will finish them off, especially in areas with a large Asian population.

    It will also finish off this country. Instead we will be living in Milliband’s “One Nation” socialist state — something his Marxist father could only dream of.

    And to give an idea of how unfair the current boundaries are: if at the last election Labour had won the same proportion of votes as the Tories did, then Labour would now have a Parliamentary majority of 65 seats. With the same number of votes, the Tories could not reach a majority at all.
