Ed Miliband told the general public today that he was 'bringing back Socialism' to Britain. Socialism of course is that great political economic philosophy which brought about such successes as stagflation, the Winter of Discontent, decline in manufacturing and the 1983 Labour Party Manifesto (known as the longest suicide note on history). Tony Blair made Labour electable in the 1990s by getting rid of clause four making clear that Labour would not bring back Socialism to Britain. Will Red Ed reverse it? his latest announcement is a result of trade unions tugging at his leash for sure.
