Labour is the epitome of Israel's bourgeoisie. Look at their history they are the establishment. All the base roots of Israel, the IDF, public transport , electoral system (designed at its inception to keep Labour in power), all goes back to the Labour party. He is going to champion the Middle Class. So what we have here is an Israeli Tony Blair, but with only a fraction of Blair's political acumen. It seems the working class, the backbone of any society will be ignored again. So they will vote as they have in the past. Some die hards for Labour, but the bulk for Likud, Shas, and Mr. Lapid will make no difference.
