I’m seeing right wingers run the line “outflanking Labour on the left” quite a bit (just coincidence I’m sure).
We used to call it “swallowing dead rats”.
We used to call it “losing the argument”.
Please by all means National keep moving left. It’s shifting the political center to the left. Capital gains tax is OK now. Raising benefits is Ok now. The left is winning from opposition. Please keep outflanking us!
