It’s not exactly news. Labour gave up on the working class two decades ago. But now I’m helping to build a new party of the left, Iain Dale invited me back on his LBC show to discuss the issue.
I have to say, while I disagree with Dale on many things, I have a great deal of respect for him as an interviewer. Aside from one fairly irrelevant question about my age in which he noted that I wasn’t born when Labour released its 1983 manifesto (dubbed the longest suicide note in history), playing to the ridiculous argument of personal experience over knowledge, I felt he asked some very challenging and pertinent questions.
