Not for the first time in my experience, the Labour Party is struggling to find its way forward. But I would nominate the suggestion from Gregg McClymont and Ben Jackson that the party focus its message on growth and patriotism for first silliness prize. If Labour were a fledgling PR company trying to launch its reputation by saying something everyone from the North Korean Communist Party to the American Enterprise Institute to Hamas would agree with, then that might make some sense. But for a political party looking for something different from what even the Green Party with its green investment ideas would accept (whilst not going back to the world before the Second World War), talking about growth and patriotism is patently ridiculous. No wonder the Left are struggling!
