Oh dear Polly, where have you been these last twenty-four years? Most people with half a brain know that Labour’s rightward drift started when Neil Kinnock became party leader in 1983 (Weren’t you in the SDP at that time?). If you feel so upset at being betrayed by the present government, then why don’t you join Ming Campbell’s Liberal Democrats? At least they believe in what they do.
