Imagining One Nation Britain

Imagining One Nation Britain

The idea of a "One Nation" Britain originally belonged to the Conservative Party, originating with Benjamin Disraeli who saw Britain divided into two nations, the rich and the poor.

In his 2012 conference speech Ed Miliband, Leader of the Labour Party, redefined his party as "One Nation" Labour. In a period of economic crisis and with the loss of public trust in the ability of politicians to renew our institutions and elevate the condition of the people, who now speaks for One Nation?

The LSE Institute of Public Affairs' One Nation programme brings together leading politicians of the Government and Opposition, together with academics and commentators, to discuss the meaning of "One Nation" and the future of the country.
