    Yeah I don’t think any of this makes even tactical sense. It’s really not popular. It’s a matter of pure dogma: they really like limited public spending and they really don’t like unions.

    Although in fairness it does suit the long term strategic interests *of this particular faction* for the party to be tied to low spending and billionaires, even if that’s a suboptimal electoral strategy. As ever it’s not just that these people are thick and unpleasant: they’re pursuing their particular interests. It’s sometimes hard to recognise that because the popular critical *and* positive take on Blairites is that they want to win power at any cost. They don’t really: they want to consolidate their power within the party and being in government is a secondary concern.

    I know you know all this by the way it’s just a general rant.

    Rome burning whilst the Tory party fiddles . Brown making the case for more government intervention in the cost of living crisis and Labour too. From todays Grinder:

    With pressure growing for action, senior Labour sources have confirmed to the Observer that the party is preparing to back a key intervention designed to curb the winter crisis, in addition to the removal of VAT on energy bills that it has already supported.

    The Mail, and other right biased news, are hostile to Sir Keir.
    Makes you think, doesn't it?

    Does it though. They’re pretty hostile to Sunak too and this is not evidence that he’s a social democrat or a threat to Tory rule.

    If it has that effect you should read it more often?

    Probably not the right thread for it, but here’s a lovely informative map (Twitter).

    Next door to me. I don't know for sure but it may well have been his hatred for travelling folk that gets him such a percentage as I'd be pretty sure all his constituents are racist knuckle dragging tools aswell. At least half of them, anyway.
