Wannabe UKIP leader Steven Woolfe is the latest Right-wing populist to discover the virtues of progressive language in his bid for working class votes.
On the BBC Today programme this morning, the MEP repeated his ‘social mobility’ pitch, saying he hopes to target Labour seats in future elections.
Woolfe, who made headlines today after missing the deadline for submitting his leadership nomination, has talked a Leftish talk before. In an interview with IBTimes on Thursday, he said:
‘My biggest concern is that we want to have an economy that treats everybody as fairly and equally as possible to make sure that no one is left behind and that someone is listening to them.
We’re not out there to protect the big corporates ripping us off.
We believe in a fair taxation system, we believe in capitalism not corporatism, but more than anything else we believe in people.’
