John Prescott on Ed Miliband, Disraeli and 'one-nation'

Lord Prescott claimed not to know who Disraeli was and said he preferred the title "one Labour" or "just Labour" when asked about the one-nation phrase.
Ed Miliband name-checked the former Conservative prime minister and referred to "one-nation" more than 40 times when he addressed the Labour Party conference in Manchester.
The former deputy prime minister said the leader gave a "brilliant speech" and had to stay in modern times, while describing himself as "the old man in this".
He told Andrew Neil: "You know I am not an intellectual, I have proved that over the years haven't I? Who the hell is Disraeli?"
