Behind the arras, a confused Len McCluskey suspects one or more people in the Labour leadership is in MI5 and working to bring down the party, but surely it cannot be anyone who was educated at a public school and went on to Oxbridge?

The Gerasites

I have previously asserted two things. Firstly that the election of a particular individual as leader of the Labour Party was irrelevant as the party had been usurped before the ballots were counted and arguably, though unprovable, before last summer’s contest even started. My second assertion was that the May 2016 results mean that the party is now beyond rescue because they were sufficiently tepid to allow the Corbynistas to entrench their position. That view has since been reflected by a poll showing Corbyn would win a leadership contest even more emphatically despite, or maybe because, of those May results.

In this piece I argue that the time has come to accept that the world view of the Corbynista and the world view of the ordinary Labour member/supporter/voter is so fundamentally different that they are incompatible and they can no longer co-exist within the same party. In short, that the…

What I Thought I’d Never Write: Why I Voted Conservative


Tillers and the Wonderful World of Unicycling Aardvarks*


This evening, I did something I never thought I would do, nor have ever wanted to: I voted Conservative.

If anyone is interested, I would like to explain why I did so, and why doing so was such a big thing.

I first voted in the 1979 general election; I have voted Labour in every general election since. Until today, I have only voted anything other than Labour twice: once, in European elections when Labour were committed to pulling out of the EEC, I voted Liberal; I once spoiled a ballot paper when there was no Labour candidate in a local election.

Pray some other background. True, my grandmother (on my mum’s side) was a working class Tory. And, my mother was a natural Liberal who, given the state of the Liberal party, through the ‘50s, ‘60s and ‘70s was a floating voter. But, I got my political education from…

It’s not in the left’s interest to pretend this week was great


Jade Azim

I made the same mistake. I would dismiss warning signs leading up to 2015. Because it made me feel safe and good. I would see bad by-elections and hear worrying reports, but I shrugged it off out of suggestion it was mere doom-mongering. Until the exit poll. Today, I see it happening again.

The Left trying to claim the loss of more than 20 councillors -regardless of exceeded expectations- does it no favours. The Left trying to suggest that the first Opposition to go backwards since the abyss of the 80s is a victory and suggestion Jeremy will bloody be PM is delusional at best and catastrophic at worst. Not just for the Party, but for its own wing. If we continue to define ourselves and the Left by awfully bad standards, saying we beat hilariously shit expectations, then expect nothing other than ridicule.

Jeremy faces a bullish PLP and critics with no…

There is a difference between politics, and politics. What I mean by that is that political activism does not have to be partisan; it does not have to marginalize people. The incredible strawman in…

A Sadiq victory would be a victory for the Labour I joined


Jade Azim

It’s little surprise that Corbyn’s Labour does not enthrall me. I have been half-hearted in my campaigning, increasingly uncomfortable getting told on the doorstep by working class voters that Labour has lost its way, and constantly banging my head against a wall at the Leader’s Office. I feel well and truly on the opposite side of people that I want to stand up for. On the contrary, I feel like Labour as it is are as far from the ‘People’s Party’ as we have ever been.

Except for in London.

Posting my ballot for Sadiq Khan was the first sincere action I have taken since last Summer. Because I was voting for the Party I joined.

Everyone has their own version of Labour. I am in no position (not that that will stop me…) to de-legitimise any one version. But Labour today is not mine. I cannot recognise it. I…
