True, but the Nu-Labour thing is I think is dying a bit now: it was only ever a thing because Labour wanted to capture more of the floating voters or disillusioned soft tories. Since the wars and fucked economy, that's no longer something is going to be getting strongly behind. They're currently quite (soft) socialist in their thinking, and don't seem to have much argument in public at least over that. The Tory's even in opposition would get it's knickers in a twist over Europe for example.|
As for lib dems, champagne socialists or libertarian fantasists, they both have a lot of common ground I think, which kind of defines the party. Hopelessly idealistic, but they are at least unified in it.
