What’s the betting that poor young James Purnell won’t succeed, and he’s just become a a Brownian Sacrificial Swipe at the New Left, for Brownelectoral reasons?
The socialists can’t afford to abolish their clientariat.
They can’t. Just can’t.
It does not matter what their name is. James Purnell. Frank Field. Gordon Brown. Clem Attlee, Ted Heath (huh?)
If they do, they will never get their hands on the levers of power again, for “the people” will have abolished these, if truly liberated.
