  1. I suspect the left or what’s left of it, and Jon Cruddas idea of the left are two massive different beliefs.

    Labour these days like to be called the center left, how one can be in the center and to the left I’ve no idea, but I suspect these days labour is a middle class upper middle class party out to win those swinger the swing voters.

    It’s not the party of the poor or the working class that’s for sure.
