Labour orators from Bevan to Miliband

Andrew S. Crines

Manchester University Press

This chapter argues that Miliband was an effective orator when addressing the Labour conferences of 2012 and 2013. This was because they were sympathetic to his argument that Labour needed to change. Miliband’s renewal strategies revolved around traditional social democratic values, which he argued had been present since Attlee’s period as leader. Furthermore, Miliband argued those who challenged the ‘two nations’ of economic liberalism were also compatible, thus laying the foundations for One Nation Labour. This was constructed as a defence of the NHS, the Union, and an egalitarian education system.
