Mind The Gap !

I hadn’t previously realized that platforms 1 to 8 were written by multiple people each authors of and with slightly different takes on the Euston Manifesto.

Platform 5 is particularly good and addresses many of the misperceptions about the manifesto.

Alan Johnson says,

Martin Kettle in a largely fair-minded and thoughtful critique, claimed that Euston was anti-capitalist and therefore living in the past, trying to rescue the dodo of socialism. Others have labelled the manifesto ‘Blairite’ and a betrayal of the left. Again, a new reality is being missed. Old categories are being clamped down atop the Euston manifesto in ways that distort its meaning.
