Momentum – where next? March 8, 2017Posted by WorldbyStorm in Uncategorized.
I’m sure I’m not alone in being very intrigued by Momentum’s fortunes.
The Observer – like its weekly analogue – is always exercised by the ‘hard left’, as can be seen here:
A new national coordinating group is to meet for the first time on 11 March, in Birmingham, shorn of leftwing groups and individuals judged as hostile to Labour.
Two weeks later, on 25 March, Momentum will hold its first national conference, also in Birmingham, building on the events it held in parallel with Labour’s annual conference in Liverpool in September.
But what is the read of those closer in to the organisation? Has it been holed beneath the waterline by the problems evident across the last year? And what prospects, if any, are there for it?
