@lukeakehurst on Labourlist today says, “There are a few thousand far -leftwingers who want us to take a “ No Cuts” position. They hate the Labour Party and in many cases will never vote for us anyway.”
This attitude that disillusioned and disenfranchised leftwingers are not worth the effort, and instead we should be trying to appeal to Tory voters, coming from a member of Labour’s NEC horrified me, especially as this week Luke also told me to burn my Labour membership card and stop having “daft politics”.
I am working class. I have spent many years as a trade union activist. If the Labour Party don’t want me, who is going to represent me in Westminster?
