This week’s column is on Labour malaise and the leader’s contribution to it.
Also, I pontificated on the Guardian weekly politics podcast.
This week’s column is about the long tail of Brexit in British political culture; Boris Johnson’s gift for deferring hard choices and Keir Starmer’s difficulty getting into the national conversation.
In which we discuss his new book and the ways in which he failed as leader of the Labour party.
(And, related, a column I didn’t post the other week on “Global Britain” delusions and cabinet rows over an Australian trade deal.)
… and not the imaginary one you like to beat. That’s the lesson in this week’s column on what Labour tends to get wrong when it campaigns against the ‘same old Tories’.
