>> Labour has set out a new interventionist economic path for post-Brexit Britain. The party's shadow chancellor expected to make the case for a manufacturing renaissance in the UK. John McDonnell taking to the stage Monday in his set piece speech at Labour's annual conference. He'll commit a future Labour government to state help in key sectors rather than dog eat dog competition.

But the announcement is unlikely to be to everyone's taste. Even here, the close ally of reelected leader Jeremy Corbyn is a divisive figure.

>> But Tony Blair, he's that guy who people boo because he had the cheek to win three general elections!
APPLAUSE
>> Not so long ago, those views might have had a place on the conference stage, but it's unlikely whilst this man is in charge. On Monday, party members and the wider public will get another major taste of what direction Corbyn's Labour are heading in.
