What a joy today to hear again from war-crimes suspect Tony Blair! He’s never sounded more panicked, falling over his words as he warns Labour not to be true to itself. He clearly shares the anxiety of so many of his fans who fear the Left is about to steal their party from them. That’s karma, unfortunately. ‘Don’t go back,’ he pleads, ‘embrace modernity!’ No-one’s going back: the Left is moving forward because the whole Thatcher-in-a-suit con trick has failed and Karl Marx’s views from the 19th century are seen to be rather more relevant than Adam Smith’s from the 18th.
