RJM .... 'Modern Labour is about power' etc. never a truer word.

As British journalist, Melanie Philips said,
" Once upon a time when Labour owed more to Methodism than to Marx it was a hallmark of progressive politics to attempt to minimise harm and to maximise socially responsible behaviour.But now Labour chooses to attack socially responsible behaviour and provide instead rocket fuel for social devastation and individual misery".
Okay she was writing about the British Labour party but I'm sure that some of you will be able to see the connection to what we had for the past few years.
