Judgement on Labour: let's get the fuckers out!
In politics, the acid test is what you end up achieving. I say to the doubters, judge us after 10 years of success in office. For one of the fruits of that success will be that Britain has become a more equal society.
So said Peter Mandelson in 1997. Almost 13 arid years later the judgement is in: Britain has a society that is almost third world in its level of inequality. The richest ten percent are a 100 times wealthier than the poorest ten percent of the population.
As far as this blog is concerned the general election campaign starts right now. We are going to work to get this rancid collection of middle class interlopers out of office and then out of our party.
