No holds Bard – Jon Cruddas sets out with Shakespearean eloquence the true nature of the Labour Party leadership.
“Far be it from me to compare modern politicians to Soviet apparatchiks.
But we will not recover by adopting the mentality of Soviet Politburo in the late 1950s for whom reform meant little more than denouncing Stalin while keeping the policies and structures of Stalinism intact.
The Soviet Union endured thirty years of stagnation before the arrival of glasnost.”
Actually worth reading his entire speech to the Compass Conference. So much common sense. Just as well he is not standing in the leadership campaign eh?
