    The BBC are centrist. The views they express are those shared by Labour and the Tories, they don't promote communism or socialism (actual far-leftism) but liberal centrism.

    Being an SJW isn't a far-left position, Theresa May has always been a bit of an SJW herself (trying to force race quotas in the police, and recently saying islamophobia is extremism).

    I think Fukuyama meant it as a debating point originally, but it got picked up and shared widely by the neoliberals and the Third Way'ers, to the point where Brown could announce the utterly absurd nostrum that boom and bust was over for ever.
