Not so red?

Glasgow Herald columnist Iain MacWhirter writes today:

Fortunately, Mr. Sheridan (leader of the Scottish Socialist Party) is a red-blooded socialist who wants to unite the working classes of whatever colour in the cause of socialism. He may have some daft ideas about nationalising the oil industry, but at least you won’t hear him talking about repatriation of immigrants.

I suppose it’s some kind of breakthrough if nationalisation is now seen to be a “daft idea” even for red-blooded socialists.
