Blair writing in the Guardian today says he wants an open debate about public service reform. Can it really be that after a decade they still have not got a clue? In the ranks it is increasingly like New Labour never happened, midday today there will be a mass lobby of parliament to “campaign against the creeping privatisation of our public services. Join thousands of trade unionists and members of campaigning organisations to unite against the threat of privatisation!” Maggie, Maggie, Maggie, Out! Out! Out!*
Meanwhile over at the disappointingly Orwellian Labourhome the big issue of today for the “grassroots” is “Why the US government’s shock tactics will not increase breastfeeding rates”. What about the workers?
*Not the official chant.
