All the Labour candidates have tacked to the left, but do they really mean it? | Owen Jones

One question haunts the party’s leadership race: whether contenders are only saying what members want to hear

Chuka Umunna’s description of the Labour party “behaving like a petulant child who has been told you can’t have the sweeties in the sweet shop” in the summer of 2015 was a somewhat crude summation of what became the prevailing attitude of Jeremy Corbyn’s internal opponents. While they wo...
