The Labour Party machinery
has long been prone to imagining outcomes within the narrowest, safest, and
statistically verifiable ranges of business as usual. No wonder it’s panicking over

Unromantic as it may be, without a feasible alternative to capitalism it is capitalism we have to work with. At this time, a reformed and civilised capitalism is the best Labour can do, and it is what the public want.
