Keir Starmer's lead in the Labour leadership election now seems so compelling that people are speculating as to the identity of various front bench posts. More important than who is ultimately getting a new critique of the government's strategy. The Tories have deftly abandoned their austerity narrative which tacitly concedes that the last decade of suffering was a pointless, self inflicted disaster. Labour are so preoccupied with internal arguments that the Conservatives have been allowed to do this pretty scotfree.
Hopefully Oliver Kamm's piece on import substitution will help give some pointers.
