Divided Loyalties

Neal Lawson (The party of the living dead, January 8) recommends "a new politics and sense of collectivism" if there is to be any hope for the "democratic left". But the new product is no longer owned by the democratic left. Labour is now a party for "centre and centre-left politics". It says so on the tin (the 1997 manifesto).
