It may be a pointless observation but I want to encourage a healthy debate about the future of the Party – and will be pretty ruthless on my platforms for maintaining a level of decency and respect for each other views. We live in a democracy fortunately where putting your name forward for election is encouraged. We then debate the issues.
I waited all week to publish anything on the Labour leadership in the hope that the so-called peace talks with the Unions might bear some fruit. But Corbyn statements all week showed he was digging in for a fight – not compromise. The news today ends that speculation and as soon as we have heard from Angela Eagle on Monday and the NEC on the process I aim to post a few thoughts as the election unfolds and the fight for the soul of the Labour Party as an election winning entity begins.
