INDEED, THEY'VE RETURNED TO KINNOCKISM...:

Labour's failures 'worse than Kinnock', says David Hare (Ben Quinn, 30 January 2015, The Guardian)

Labour is now comprehensively failing to provide a convincing narrative on a scale bigger even than during Neil Kinnock's doomed 1992 election campaign, according to the influential playwright David Hare.

In an excoriating analysis of Labour's leadership, he suggests that Miliband struggles to connect with the public, saying "you can only make a great speech if you have a great analysis". But he also turns on the entire political class, saying it is their fault that they are now perceived as a "self-interested cartel".


...when they need to return to Blairism to be relevant.
