It strikes me as a bit rich for people who’ve supported the dismantling of post war social democracy and its replacement with free for all, individualistic capitalism to now warn of the dangers. This article could have been written by Michael Foot in the 1980s when he was warning of the consequences of wholesale deindustrialisation. But he was dismissed as a ‘loony Leftie’. The birds have come home to roost and somehow the Right in both US and UK have claimed the agenda. Audacious in my book!
