After years in which we all learned that the “top one per cent” has been causing all the problems, he appealed on members of that elite group in Cambridge University, it seems, to take over the Labour Party and return it to neoliberal nonsense politics.
He still hasn’t worked out that the policies he endorses made Labour unelectable for a majority of voters in May and in 2010, even though a simple glance at the proportion of the electorate voting Labour since 1997 will make the case very clearly.
There is nowhere for him to go but out.
According to the Cambridge University student newspaper Varsity, Hunt told students: “You are the top one per cent. The Labour party is in the s***. It is your job and your responsibility to take leadership going forward.”
Hunt was one of a group of former members of the Labour shadow cabinet to rule out serving on Jeremy Corbyn’s front bench if he was elected Labour leader and has been outspoken about the party’s need to prioritise efforts to return to government.
