Mm, I don’t know quite what to think about this new movement. Well intentioned no doubt but I always worry about aiming for the centre ground, moderation etc. In many ways it makes sense but it hardly grabs folks attention nor does it create a radical way forward for progressives in the UK.

If it succeeds in bringing free-thinking radicals and progressives together to organise around a set of clear principles then great but for now I’ll take a rain check on it. Would love to here the views of others though.

With thanks to my Research Assistant Roy Connell for spotting the lead to this posting.
