Polly Toynbee seems to have found a new gusset wetner:
He bestrides this conference like a colossus. Big Mac is the one they want to hear, from Andrew Marr to Mumsnet. Lobbyists for every cause are eager to catch his coat-tails. John McDonnell is the man who matters because what he says goes when it comes to almost everything at this Labour gathering in Liverpool. His imprimatur is stamped on every card vote and each frontbench speech; it is as disciplined as in the old New Labour pager-control days.
And it’s always some man wielding the rod of political power, isn’t it?
Add some black footy bags an it’s almost fascist in its attraction to the power of will.
