Mr Prescott compared is proposals to the dramatic moves to introduce "one-member one-vote" (Omov) elections for the party leader under John Smith and end the Clause 4 commitment to nationalisation under Mr Blair.
Great speech from Ed. Change is always controversial, like OMOV was 20 years ago & Clause 4 in 94. But let's have the debate! #BoldLabour
