My memory seems terrible these days, so these requests may become a common feature of the blog. A few weeks ago, at the height of the abortive leadership campaign against Jeremy Corbyn there was an excerpt from a speech doing the rounds on various UK blogs and social media of (I think) a former Labour leader (MacDonald? Atlee?) castigating his own party for an obsession with principle over pragmatism with lines similar to ‘what wins applause at party conferences does not win applause in general elections’. Now I can’t find it! Anyone else see this and remember the speaker, or any searchable details?
