Do Socialists Need To Reassess Gordon?

The think-tank "Reform" is for "liberalism" within the public sector, free enterprise and limited Government. Gordon Brown's short period as Prime Minister has got up its nose - here.

Given Gordon's democratic agenda for Parliament and now moves towards public expenditure for what could come to be a more democratically controlled form of social interventionism, then maybe some of us rushed to judgement too soon in seeing Gordon as merely a tougher Blairite - as here and here.

So who is Gordon trying to con? Is it those anti-Labourites he has drawn into his "inclusive" Government or is it the Left and Centre-Left of the Labour Party? Or is it all of us?

It is all worth following closely and critically. Watch this space.
