This is why George Lansbury is my hero, he tells it as it is or as it should be.

The workers must be given tangible proof that Labour administration means something different from Capitalist administration, and in a nutshell this means diverting wealth from the wealthy ratepayers to the poor. Those who pretend that a sound Labour policy can be pursued nationally or locally without making the rich poorer should find another party. – George Lansbury 1922

Would that we had someone of the calibre of George or any of the other Poplar councillors with us today!
