what I have seen of him, which isn't that much, Andy Burnham is electable.

Ideology is all well and good but first you have to be in a position to implement it. I refer you to Michael Foot, as ever.

I predict you wouldn't predict it. Given recent history. And recent history tells us there is division.

The New Scientist reported research into events spanning more tan 200 years which shows that after a recession there is a slide towards the right. And I think we cane see that is true of both the UK & US since 2008. Once the excesses of the greedy become too onerous maybe there is a redress. Slowly.
