Is that necessarily a bad thing?? I mean, socialism as could be found through Old Labour, doesn't really live on in Britain as much as it did before Thatcher. People are home-owners now, they have shares. I think the British populace moved generally to the right and Tony Blair (and John Smith (sadly missed), Robin Cook (also missed), Gordon Brown) simply dragged Labour where that new set of expectations were. I don't really see all that many traditional socialists around these days so what use would a political party that represents them be to the rest of us??No, I think not, in my opinion he will be remembered as the blithering idiot who destroyed the link between the Labour Party and socialism.
On the other hand, I too could be wrong...........
