Just as the young in the sixties thought that they invented sex, so the millennials mistakenly believe that they invented disruption. But she was the arch-disruptor.
We cannot be the tired heavyweight in the twilight of their career landing a few punches. We need the energy and urgency of the underdog to go on the attack.

May’s audit of ethnic disparities could blight her planned relaunch – and, more importantly, produce policy that sets back social justice rather than takes it forward.

A branch at the heart of Labour’s marginal seats campaign approvingly quotes Ken Loach’s call to drive out dissenting MPs.
