An Irrelevance

Polly Toynbee on the Labour leadership election.

I genuinely beleive that Labour is a party in its death throes and is an irrelevance. If the route back to power is to mimic the Tories best it dies sooner rather than later. Ground up movements in Greece and Spain shown the way forward. There is a coalition of the radical left out there that can be formed.

We don’t need to look for ways to run the economy more efficiciently. We need ways to remake society into the society we need it to be.

Labour isn’t currently part of that argument and I don’t see a time when it will be.
