Brian Topp has a piece in an upcoming issue of Policy Magazine which can be read here:
He berates the "romantics." One of his derisive terms for the party's perpetually beaten-down, and now drifting away, left-wing, who "unhelpfully agitate to make the NDP politically irrelevant and unelectable." Also known as "leftier-than-thou showboaters."
You know; the kind of people who admire Bernie Sanders. (Yes, this is what it's come to.)
To Topp's thinking, the NDP's problem is the faction that's resolutely ignored at convention and forever shut out of any policy and strategy decision making.
I find it astonishing. And - because, what's left? - hilarious.
