Best progressive politics

Always interesting content and discussion

The last desperate gasps of New Labour

Don’t be fooled, they aren’t true progressives. Stale quasi-social conservatives who didn’t learn the lessons of the Blair and Brown years, the most authoritarian government in decades, maybe ever. Totally out of touch with modern metropolitan liberalism. Still they have the Labour Party back, only Corbyn and the Momentum socialist loonies could have done worse and god how they did and then some and then some more.

False advertising!

The least progressive political podcast I’ve listened to.

Blairite rubbish that shouldn’t be allowed to use the word progressive in the title.
