    Interesting couple of undated clips of Luke Akehurst – the longstanding Labour Right political fixer and now PPC for the Labour Party in the North East – playing out the role of a non-Jewish gatekeeper of what constitutes a proper Jew. (A clue – it relates to that person’s position on Zionism.)

    Maybe he is an excellent behind the scenes fixer/hatchet man/factionalist extraordinaire (delete as appropriate) for the Labour Right but he also looks like he’s quickly becoming a liability for Starmer’s Labour Party. He comes across as a 2024 version of John Spellar . . . but without the charisma (I hope people get that joke):

    I’m sorry but this is just bloody weird at this point. Has a Labour Party SPAD told him that he needs to reach out to floating voters in 1953 Tunbridge Wells?

    There was an article in last Friday’s Times headlined “Reeves’s plan for growth is built on private cash”. Precisely. The author thought this was a brilliant idea but it could prove to be why the plan will fail — as private capitalists will only put up the cash if they judge there’s a profit in it for them. If not, they won’t.

    The incoming Labour government may be able to get things started by offering them a bribe in the form of contracts and subsidies. But this planned crony capitalism won’t be sustainable unless profits are generated at some point.

    Here behind a pay wall:

    Incidentally, the title of this thread is a bit outdated with private capitalists jumping on the bandwagon in the hope of getting a contract, subsidy or knighthood.

    I like Kathy Burke’s reply. Short and succinct:

    Something to bookmark for future reference. It comes via Peter Oborne, who is one of the more interesting political commentators:
