“David Lindsay has generated a brilliant reconciliation of the conflicting strains of the Labour Tradition and is worthy of the closest attention.”
Dr Maurice Glasman, Lord Glasman of Stoke Newington and Stamford Hill, founder of Blue Labour.

It is not yet online, if it ever will be, but my friend Michael Merrick has a very good article in this week's Catholic Herald, on why the Left is not the enemy of the Catholic Church. Do get hold of a copy.
“Before Red Tory and Blue Labour there was David Lindsay. He was arguably the first to announce a postliberal politics of paradox, and to delve into the deep, unwritten British past in order to craft, theoretically, an alternative British and international future. It is high time that the singular and yet wholly pertinent writings of this County Durham Catholic Labour prophet receive a wider circulation.” Professor John Milbank, Professor in Religion, Politics and Ethics, University of Nottingham.
