    Context – what did he say surrounding this statement?

    A rare moment of honesty indeed. It is what this government is about….raising more money FOR the rich.

    This leadership contest needs more vision, direction and policy

    If there was a box marked “none of the above” it would probably be on course to win the first round of the Labour leadership contest. There is little in terms of content (so far) to get excited about. The process seems to be too long. And the tone is becoming increasingly acrimonious. Where’s the vision? Where’s the passion?
