Geoff Mulgan ran New Labour Think Tank Demos and then Number 10’s Strategy Unit. He’s an interesting man, full of ideas, unconventional, a proper modern thinker/doer. His three part series for Radio 4’s The Westminster Hour is the best political radio I’ve heard in years. A genuine insight to the policy-making process and a really good overview of politics’ crisis – received opinion given a good kicking in the process. Should be compulsory listening, especially for the crowd of puffed up old-timers on the Labour back benches who are getting ready to use their new-found clout to wind back the clock to precisely five minutes before Tony Blair was elected leader.
(I’m going to leave it to trust that the programme’s Real streams will not be removed or overwritten…)
