Quote of the Day

Rafael Behr in the New Statesman

“… why can’t a shadow cabinet minister plant a half-decent story in the middle of silly season? It feels as if Labour has lost its mojo. This is partly a function of being adrift between two positions. There is the old default of decrying everything the coalition does. Then there is the new challenge: credibly promising a better alternative in recognition of the fiscal squeeze that will endure beyond the next election.”
