Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
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).

In the long run, we're all dead. John Maynard Keynes
