Ken Livingstone wants to wage war on the wrong class

‘Forget the New Labour brand – now it’s back to what really counts: Class’.  So says Ken Livingstone in a typically long winded diatribe against New Labour in the Mail on Sunday.  Livingstone opens his piece thus:

For the first time we have an Election which all three main parties have lost and so has the country.

For once, Livingstone has offered a correct analysis.  But it isn’t Livingstone’s outdated and damaging brand of divisive class warfare the country needs.  The only class war that needs to be fought is the one to defeat the political class and empower ordinary people.  What is needed is a fight against authoritarian statism, and reform that makes this country’s politics truly democratic while reducing the size of the state and putting power in the hands of the people.
