North Yorkshire MP William Hague today tried to seize back Benjamin Disraeli for the Tories, after Ed Miliband last week claimed the "One Nation" phrase for Labour.

Mr Miliband, who represents Doncaster North, mentioned the phrase 46 times in 65 minutes in his party conference speech in Manchester.

But in a speech to the Conservative Party conference in Birmingham today, Foreign Secretary William Hague said:

"To borrow a turn of phrase, we were led by Disraeli, our predecessors knew Disraeli, Disraeli's beliefs were Conservative through and through, and, Ed Miliband, you are no Disraeli."
