yes, but isn't that because, other than Jospin then (and look at how much flak the French socialists have taken for the 35-hour week and similar policies) nobody fought the notion that the Third Way was the only possible route for socialists, and thus that the only "reasonable" socialists were third wayists - ie precisely the move I described above.

Either be Third way, or be labelled an extremist, a dinosaur (or both, or worse, French).
