Broadband communism was the phrase I believe. Looking at what has happened since GE19 some of his ideas look visionary.Isn't some of that down to the simplism of the media and how it represents things (see "free broadband")?
I tend to agree with you that renationalisation whilst something that should happen is really secondary to more important 21st century stuff. The first thing Labour needs to do is expose the state budget = household budget myth. Rishi Sunak has given them the opportunity to do it through the covid spending. Unfortunately the dullard Starmer has as shadow chancellor seems to want to try and play the Tories at their own game. It's just really depressing.
Starmer could really hammer the Tories post Brexit and Cov-ID if he had a plan that was invigorating and innovative - there is certainly appetite for it out there. But at the moment he just wants to stand near a flag...
