New[er] Labour?
Analysis from the BBC: "Tony Blair did not change the Labour party - he created an entirely new party.  It is a view put forward by veteran left-winger Tony Benn and eagerly shared by those who believe "their party" was hijacked by the Blair-Brown-Mandelson project.
And in many senses it is true. The ditching of Clause IV of the constitution, the ending of the supremacy of the party conference, the huge changes in the way policy is made, the weakening of the links with the trades unions and even the policies themselves effectively killed off old Labour. "
