In praise of Jon Cruddas

'Ethical socialism' - I like the sound of this. On a long train journey home this evening I read this excellent piece in today's Times about Jon Cruddas. This piece in particular caught my eye:

'Mr Cruddas thinks of himself as an ethical socialist who trusts the people and contrasts himself with the state centralisers in his party. If the Labour Party enters a discussion about its future, Mr Cruddas’s voice will be needed in that throng.'

I for one am keen to hear more from the excellent Mr Cruddas.

"Ethical socialism" - wasn't that a term used by one Tony Blair back in the day? ;-)
