Peter Hain suggests that Labour needs to be more radical
in order to win back voters defecting to the Greens.
No. What it needs to do is shout at, morally blackmail and patronise Green voters a bit more. The best way to win over voters who no longer feel that Labour owns every vote to the left of centre as a god-given right is to belligerently step to them, saying "you what, you what, you what? Come on then! Want some of this do you? Five more years of Cameron, you wankaaaahs."
And then imply that they're basically a bunch of children of privilege who wear hemp clothing and entertain ethereally daffy, socially liberal beliefs, and have somehow forgotten that their role is to take orders from the plain-speaking progeny of soil and toil that run the Labour Party.
Finally, it should be strongly implied that Green voters are irresponsibly trying to undermine the Labour Party because they care more about legalising brothels and making friends with Al Qaeda than saving our NHS. Right? Amirite? Or amirite? Amirite or amirite? Right?
