Demos Goes Bunting

Propeller-Head Wonk Watch: Madeleine Bunting is leaving the Guardian to become director of Demos in the autumn. The Guardian columnist and associate editor also writes for the Catholic Tablet. She is somewhat off-message for Blair and her appointment is yet more evidence that the era of New Labour is coming to an end.

If a think-tank like Demos is no longer in safe hands for New Labour it can only underline that the advance of Blairite ideology will definitely end when his premiership ends.
