"UK perspective: examples of left wing media welcome"
In the UK you are now "lefty" (to use the approved Tory party vernacular) if you disagree with anything the government says. This is even the case after the government has (inevitably) performed a screeching U-turn and is now disagreeing with itself
The only thing that can't be "lefty" is any Tory MP. Right up to the point when they whip is withdrawn that is, at which point they automatically become lefty.
Unless of course the whip is restored.
