Labour PPS: ‘One Nation’ is Rubbish

Finally a Labour MP has said what everyone was thinking. Simon Danczuk has gone tonto about Labour’s messaging. Writing in PR Week the Rochdale MP and Labour PPS hits the nail on the head:

“We’ve already been told, from the very top, to intertwine ‘one nation’ into every policy statement we make, to build it into speeches, to continually repeat the phrase ‘one nation’ at every opportunity. I’m beginning to worry we haven’t moved on from the 1990s. But please, it’s not a General Election winning strapline is it? The public isn’t as accepting of such simple messaging any more. Indeed, I’ve come to believe the public is actively turned off by the torturous repetition of political mantras.”

Discussing Labour’s campaigning magazine, Danczuk coughed: “I was at least grateful they hadn’t bothered with Eddie Izzard for a change.” Aren’t we all.

UPDATE: Labour are taking this stoically:

“We believe in Britain being a country where everyone plays their part and we’ll continue to make the argument for One Nation Labour.”

Apparently Danczuk was ditched as PPS last year.

            To avoid confusion, Socialism is a “social and economic doctrine that calls for public rather than private ownership or control of property and natural resources. According to the socialist view, individuals do not live or work in isolation but live in cooperation with one another. Furthermore, everything that people produce is in some sense a social product, and everyone who contributes to the production of a good is entitled to a share in it. Society as a whole, therefore, should own or at least control property for the benefit of all its members.”

            Then there is NATIONAL Socialism: also called Nazism. “Totalitarian movement led by Adolf Hitler as head of the Nazi Party in Germany. In its intense nationalism, mass appeal, and dictatorial rule, National Socialism shared many elements with Italian fascism. However, Nazism was far more extreme both in its ideas and in its practice. In almost every respect it was an anti-intellectual and atheoretical movement, emphasizing the will of the charismatic dictator as the sole source of inspiration of a people and a nation, as well as a vision of annihilation of all enemies of the Aryan Volk as the one and only goal of Nazi policy.” Encyclopaedia Britannica

        Twitter really should have a rule: “In order to use Twitter you must confirm you are over 21 and of sound mind”

          There is a failing of Twitter hi-lited here. In this case it seems the girl is not a minor but as far as I know there is nothing to a youngster getting a twitter account and playing with the adults.

          Her local Labour party though, should have a duty of care for her as they send her out on the streets knocking on doors of strangers on behalf of their party. There is also Youtube footage over twelve months old of her asking Ed Miliband questions at the Labour conference, which she has also stood at the podium of, so there is no excuse for them to be unaware of her.

            No one is stalking, but she should perhaps not post up enough personal details to track down her home address within 5 minutes of scanning her Tweets, get to know her well enough from that publicly available information to figure out who she has a crush on, and if one was really interested, perhaps get her phone number, food preference.
