Good analysis July 14, 2016Posted by WorldbyStorm in Uncategorized.
I think this from Corbyn loyalist, Clive Lewis MP, is one of the most balanced and sensible accounts I’ve seen in regard to the situation facing the British Labour Party. No pointless boosterism, but also none of the near frenzied machinations evident amongst many of those opposed to Corbyn. And a long cold look at the realities facing Labour which are far and away more significant than the leadership contest and which the latter is essentially a diversion and distraction from. I think his point about a ‘vision’ is particularly well made, in relation to how the SNP and GP have managed to offer something that voters are attracted by as distinct from Labour. I genuinely cannot see how the current situation resolves in a way that is good for workers in the UK or the Labour Party itself. The unseemly haste to jettison Corbyn seems both in terms of principle and tactics completely wrong-headed. Another self-inflicted blow from the experts in same whose track record since the Blair years has been unprecedented.
