All That Is Solid ...: Neil Kinnock's Timely Warning averypublicsociologist.blogspot.com/2021/09/neil-k… some much needed balance, @philbc3 comments on the review of the forward of "Fit for the Future" and suggests that Starmer needs to get it right soon.
The full doc is labourlist.org/wp-content/upl… not so much policy promises but about policy formulation & strategy. Some of it is written in the most appalling marketing speak.
On reading it, and once past the spaghetti vocabulary, there's some interesting stuff that the legacy leadership and those surfing their coat tails aren't going to like.
I wonder if having chapters on Broadcast & Print, and Social Media misses the point about how they reinforce each other? But employing people that know what they're doing would be a good idea.
This is clearly written by committee, the section on Brand is the bastardised blue labour narrative nonsense that we have come to expect from people that consider themselves the outriders for the leadership, although I wonder how welcome this 'help' is.
Yet even then the four point plan (in the Vision section) is one most of Labour could agree with although whether if can win back the Red Wall is another matter, but it is a useful platform to consolidate and possibly expand Labour's new coalition.

While reading "Even the crisis in Afghanistan can't break the spell of Britain's delusional foreign policy" by Owen Jones theguardian.com/commentisfree/… ...
I looked for the Dennis Healy quote about following Austria into a realistic and moderate role in [then] 20th century geo-politics and found this, ‘Like Romans Becoming Italians’ modernlanguagesopen.org/articles/10.38… it's fascinating
I have not finished reading it, and it will not be unique, but it looks at the deep seated British exceptionalism that underwrote Brexit, and show it is exceedingly deep rooted.
