The party should look at what happened to the Lib Dems before giving up on Scotland and the north of England
In his column last week (“The threat to Johnson’s ‘national revival’ will come from within his own party”, Comment), Will Hutton sees an “opportunity for a revived Labour opposition, if only it can accept that the party’s future lies in championing the liberal pro-EU forces in Britain’s metropolitan cities and university towns, rather than just hankering after a working-class ‘base’ ”.
But can he really be serious? Isn’t this precisely what the pro-Remain Liberal Democrat party did and got wiped out at the last election?
