FOR THE MANY

NOT THE FEW

The Time For Change Is Now

The message delivered to us in December was resoundingly clear and demands a major reassessment of leadership and policy. The leadership failed in their efforts to broaden support, and their policies were ridiculed, rejected, or both.

Interminable distillation of worthy and respectable socially democratic policies produced a manifesto which was implausible. In large part it was as unpalatable to the wider electorate as is all that we stand against is to us. More of the same is not an option if the Labour party is ever again to win a general election.

The dewy-eyed notion of ‘traditional Labour heartlands’ is gone; they voted for Boris and the populist conservatism he offered. Whilst the past informs the argument, it is policy and politics which determines the future.

In this leadership election we must select the candidate with the character to lead both Party and Nation; and with the capacity to formulate policy worthy of a government in waiting.

To repeat over again what has gone before and expect a different outcome is, as Albert Einstein said, the definition of insanity.

 

Boris Johnson - Proven Liar

Here's a list of his porkies as long as you're arm (and getting longer everytime he opens his mouth...)
