The Labour Party now and identity politics (E375)
Mark Seddon was Labour Party royalty. He was the long serving editor of Tribune, an elected member of the Labour Party’s National Executive Committee, a close friend of the late Michael Foot and the ‘go-to’ person on Labour Party history and ideology. But now, he has left the Labour Party. So, we invited him on Sputnik to ask about his decision and his thoughts on Keir Starmer’s leadership which has put the party 13 points behind the Conservatives.
And we return to the second part of our interview with Andrew Doyle to discuss the controversies around the issues of identity politics, the control of public discourse and the new types of social activism which sees language itself as potentially violent.
