One response to ““Reassurance Labour” and post-Blair social democracy”

  1. akn

    I never threw a book around my living room so much as I hurled Gidden’s revisionist shite on ‘third wayism’. Despicable. However, the difference between labor here ‘n there is the untheorised nature of the betrayal in Australia. Gillard doesn’t have a plan, or a theory, or a vision. Blair had a vision which we understood from the outset, thanks to intellectuals like Giddens, to be nothing but narcissistic lies and delusions. At least in Australia the corpse of soc. dem. is rotting with less stench. The last fight is the ecological crisis. All the rest is just ashes and exhausted history.
