Yes, it’s far more healthy to say it’s goody, goody socialists and a grouping of evil Blairites working for shadowy cabals, LFI or some other obvious nefarious group isn’t it? I am fairly critical of the use of terms like neoliberalism, because usually it just means a system which the ideological disagrees with, without being specific (there is a reason why I said what is seen as neoliberal for what Blue Labour disagree with). The point I was making was that Blue Labour is not a term which can be used to describe anyone you disagree with, as you have done. It’s got its own ideas and motives, and Starmer is not a part of it. For someone who cares so much about involving anyone in politics you seem happy to use simplistic accusations to accuse opponents of being part of some untrustworthy group, even when they aren’t.
For some reason some of those goodies are out insinuating that a prominent moderate former Labour MP is a CIA asset and those who wanted to end social injustice on that part didn’t want to end social injustice for Jews; they threw a paddy because they were asked to implement measures against it in the party.
