That party is a bit like Labour, chaotic with a revolutionary grassroots membership in control who are against the power of big business, free trade and importing cheap labour to undercut our workers. They want to fight global capitalism, for Chrissake. And that party is sort of in power. It’s not just the Labour leader who is wondering how the Tories became the enemy of big business.
