Labour has become a fashion statement

If I have followed Helen Lewis's argument correctly she is saying that Labour activists are more concerned about their self-identity as Labour activists than they are about winning power and changing the country:  http://www.newstatesman.com/helen-lewis/2015/07/echo-chamber-social-media-luring-left-cosy-delusion-and-dangerous-insularity

Effectively she is saying that Labour has become a fashion statement (which would explain the enthusiasm with which public school RADA luvvies proclaim they are socialists).

As Karl Marx did not say, history repeats itself three times.

Once as tragedy (Blair/Brown), once as farce (Miliband), once as a fashion statement (Corbyn).
