Some left consternation on here yesterday about @AnnelieseDodds Mais lecture, sparked by FT spin. Full speech now up: it is v thorough account of challenges under covid, puts clear social democratic distance against Tories & introduces theme of resilience…
Hard to see what in here would justify the condemnations: if you accepted a social democratic econ setting under JC, there's no reason not to accept this. It *doesn't* solve the problem of setting policy and timidity from Labour & "resilience" is useful but needs development...
...and I think it's here that the ownership agenda, specifically on local, community, and worker ownership of assets, is the route to follow, alongside industrial strategy and rights at work. (Ditto UBI.) But there's plenty for the left to work with, rather than against, here.

Typically interesting and considered essay from @schneiderhome - much to agree with, some I don't: 2017 was far more a balance between populism and anti-populism than is made out here, and reassembling coalition it sustained is necessary in future... 1/n…
2/n ...and he is right to stress "against state" elements of GND, but this should go further: GND (if we use framing) must include adaptation and common ownership outside of the state...
3/n ...but it's an important rejoinder to the claim that (Brexit aside) it was comms that failed in 2019. The disjoint and mismatch between largely populist comms and largely technocratic policy was too great to work.
