I also this we should investigate the activities of pubcos [big pub companies]. We’ve had a problem over the years with pubs being turned into flats and house - if you take a put out of a small community, you rip its heart out.”
I wonder if these will be the transformational policies the Labour party need to revive their fortunes? You never know...
