“Ya han venido todos menos Ayuso. ¿Quién queda? ¿Iglesias? A ver si no se lía”, reflexiona una camarera antes del mitin. “Presidente, presidente”, le gritan desde una Plaza de la Constitución abarrotada, la misma en la que un acto de Vox acabó con cargas elpais.com/espana/eleccio…

This is what you're endorsing when you vote Conservative - a man who gets his staff to book his holiday and thinks £14k for a fortnight is normal - but never mind, "picanninies and bum boys" makes it all worthwhile ... thetimes.co.uk/article/flat-r…
So long as the central bank and Treasury are giving away free money nobody cares Johnson is a crook and liar - it's once the freebies stop that the electoral impact will be felt 👇�twitter.com/oprosuk/status…At
I was part of this... the first post-lockdown in-person conference experiment ... missed the rave tho' .... twitter.com/goodbizfest/st…
13/ If you cling to it, you just end up being a cultural shop steward for people who don't like modernity. newstatesman.com/politics/uk/20…
12/ Finally, large numbers of people sense capitalism as a system is trashed - by 2008, by Covid and by the imperatives of climate change. If scarcity-based socialism is dead, so is scarcity-based Crosslandism... there's no point to it... newstatesman.com/politics/uk/20…
11/ The fact is there's a progressive majority in the UK electorate, and when the Labour right pander to the Mail and GMB agenda of (some of) their constituents, they are alienating the allies we need to form a govt... newstatesman.com/politics/uk/20…
10/ The sticking point is migration and "identity politics". You may want to return to anti-migrant rhetoric and anti-woke verbiage (I don't), but it has no electoral upsides and many downsides... that's what we're about to find out... newstatesman.com/politics/uk/20…
9/ The solution - a radical economic offer, modelled on Biden's 10% of GDP pro-cyclical stimulus, combined with social-democratic offer on crime, housing, defence... the right has no arguments against tax, borrow, print and spend anymore... but...
8/ The UBI, free broadband and human rights have become, for the Labour right, what nationalising the top 200 monopolies and the miners' strike were to their predecessors in the 1980s... fine but this time around it's the left's program that makes sense... newstatesman.com/politics/uk/20…
7/ The point is, however, to decide the political content of the alliance we need to build between both the right of the PLP and the centre/left, and the relevant mass base... as I argued here... medium.com/@paulmasonnews…
6/ Labour's Jon Cruddas is right to attack the anti-humanism of the Pomo left... but there's nothing accelerationist or anti-humanist about the Postcapitalism project... (see here) onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/abs/10.111…
5/ The arguments for a radically expanded commons, for a low-work week/year/life and for state intervention to make that happen are a) as old as socialism b) the core of Marxism c) shaping the 21st century left newstatesman.com/politics/uk/20…
4/ Capitalism as a time-limited system was never a problem for the social-democratic right, because they had no intention/vision of overcoming capitalism... but since 2008 they're at a loss... newstatesman.com/politics/uk/20…
3/ Some, like Yvonne Fovargue, say anti-racism, human rights and radical redistribution (aka "freebies") are secondary to "our core communities". Leave aside your outrage at this, they are just stone cold wrong... newstatesman.com/politics/uk/20…
2/ By "Labour right" I mean the pre-Blairite "old Labour" MPs largely represented in the Fabian Hearts & Minds pamphlet... they argue the party needs to "represent" small-town ex-industrial culture... newstatesman.com/politics/uk/20…
The Labour right is on the offensive against "post capitalism" and the UBI. That's nothing new - and we need to understand neither side can impose its agenda on the other - but they're wrong: here's why 1/ newstatesman.com/politics/uk/20…

The Labour right is on the offensive, against immigration, liberalism and anti-capitalism... we can't duck the strategic questions of carbon, automation and the future of work... a response to ⁦@JonCruddas_1⁩ and ⁦@Y_FovargueMPnewstatesman.com/politics/uk/20…
Postcapitalism and the UBI have become the bugbears for the Labour right... but what do they actually want? My reply to the Jon Cruddas book and Fabian pamphlet .... newstatesman.com/politics/uk/20…
Jon Cruddas and his allies are wrong to denounce “a workless future powered by automation” – this is the route to human liberation, says @paulmasonnews. newstatesman.com/politics/uk/20…
