For Reason In Revolt Now Thunders?
May we please have a definition of "Hard Left"? In practice, it now means the view that the minimum wage and statutory sick pay should be enough to live on, a view endorsed unanimously by the Labour Party Conference, a body that normally has a healthy aversion to unanimity.
A "Corbynista" is a 63-year-old who holds that view and who supported Andy Burnham for Leader in 2015, both of which one would rather expect of an old trade union solicitor and local councillor from Middlesbrough.
