“In 2010, we thought because they’d won the election, they’d won the argument about austerity – they hadn’t. We thought in 2015 because they’d won the election, they’d won the argument about welfare – they hadn’t. We mustn’t make that mistake again.”

Pretty much all I wanted to hear.

This is exactly what the likes of Kinnock are trying to do now with Brexit as well.

He's a waste of space. :lol:

Although not heard what he's said.
Making mistakes is how you learn.
Every generation must fight the same battles again and again and again. There is no final victory, and there is no final defeat, and so a little bit of history may help.
“What power have you got? Where did you get it from? In whose interests do you exercise it? To whom are you accountable? And how can we get rid of you?” If you cannot get rid of the people who govern you, you do not live in a democratic system.
That is why no one with power likes democracy and that is why every generation must struggle to win it and keep it – including you and me, here and now.

The same Kinnock’s who wanted a second referendum at every turn

His voting record holds up.

Him with someone like Rayner as deputy might work... maybe RLB could be shadow chancellor.

That’s not a bad call. I’m not a fan of Starmer but then again the main face isn’t that important to me. With Rayner alongside him and LB as SC that wouldn’t be a bad setup.
