TRYING TO KEEP IT THE OTHER TORY PARTY:

Jeremy Corbyn will have to learn Blairite lessons if I'm deputy, says Caroline Flint (Daniel Boffey, 8/29/15, Observer)

Caroline Flint, a candidate in the Labour deputy leadership contest, has put herself on a collision course with Jeremy Corbyn by claiming that she would use the strength of being directly elected to force the next leader to learn the lessons of the electorally successful Blair years.

The shadow energy secretary said that even if the leftwing candidate were to triumph, she would be in a powerful position to force him to focus on winning support in the wider country if chosen by Labour supporters to be his deputy.

As the Greeks will tell you, electing an apostate doesn't resstart History.
