UK Minister Meacher: We do not believe in capitalism

Sounding very Old Labour:

New Labour does not believe in capitalism, Environment Minister Michael Meacher says.

"We do not believe in capitalism. Capitalism is something that threatens inequality across the whole of society," Mr Meacher says.

One of the reasons Britain's Left is opposed to US war plans against Iraq is precisely because they see the US as a very capitalistic country. In their eyes whatever the capitalists want to do must be wrong.
