If your Dear Leader’s going to waste his days chasing Labour’s mantle as the ‘Party of the Poor’, it’s not a great idea to spend the very next day invoking Thatcher and threatening to further undermine the Unions when they’re fighting for their members’ pensions. This might shock you, but outside of the chino-clad golf clubs of Cheshire, there are some people who don’t like Maggie and a lot of them happen to be the poor people ‘Dave’ wants to ‘stand up for’. So by invoking one of the most divisive ideas of the 80’s to reassure your comrades-in-caviar that you’re not in for all that tie-dye, hoodie-hugging nonesense, you come across as a wee bit… devious.
