Ed Miliband claims Labour is 'now the one-nation party'

Ed Miliband has attempted to snatch the centre ground of British politics by declaring that Labour is now the "one-nation" party.

The phrase, normally associated with moderate Tories, was repeatedly used by the Labour leader as he roamed the conference stage at Manchester.

He spoke for more than hour, without notes, in a highly personal speech that contained few new policies.

Mr Miliband vowed to unite the nation and lead it through tough economic times.
