Labour has betrayed the people

The demise of the left leaves millions without proper protection from the elite who would happily exploit them....

....What this tells us is that it is always the role of government â€" when necessary â€" to represent the wider interest against powerful forces, and to act in a way that would be irrational or impossible for the private individual, however powerful. It is only the left that has in the past carried into government this central concept of what the true purpose of democratic government really is.
If this week's elections do indeed show how thoroughly New Labour has debased and betrayed the legacy with which it was entrusted, it will not just be Labour's party warriors who are relegated and enfeebled. The vast majority of the British people â€" irrespective of their party allegiances or lack of them â€" will have been significantly disenfranchised. The blow struck by the expenses scandal against faith in the democratic process will claim more casualties than just a few MPs. The real losers from the demise of the Labour party will be millions of ordinary people who â€" perhaps without knowing it â€" will have lost their best defence against the depredations of the powerful.
