Divided By A Common Language

If this is who defeated him from the Left, then how right-wing must Joseph Crowley be? In Britain, the only question around Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez would be what kind of Tory she was.

The drugs stuff would put her on the post-Thatcherite, libertarian Right, although it is rapidly going mainstream.

The anti-war and pro-civil liberties stuff would put her on the Old Right, although of course it has been the Left that has led on these issues for a very long time.

And the economic stuff, as well as things like abortion and gender self-identification, would fit her into Theresa May's Cabinet without raising an eyebrow.

She says that she sees Britain, Britain as it is at the moment, as a model. Well, that certainly differentiates her from Jeremy Corbyn.
