Civilisation has operated in two ways - To make one part of society more affluent and the other more wretched than would have been the lot of either in a natural state

THE ANSWER IS HERE ON RIGHTSANDWRONGS.CO.UK- LABOUR IS A CAPITALIST STOOGE PARTY – HISTORY DICTATES THE LEFT NEED A REVOLUTIONARY LEADER TO EMERGE

Socialist Market

Could you build a new party of the left? I spent a month trying and here’s what happened …

Labour is tearing itself apart and the Tories are primed for perpetual rule unless the left gets its act together. So what can be done? Start a new party that unites Britain’s progressive politics

 

The Labour party is finished; it’s time to invent a new party of the left. Jeremy Corbyn might as well be elected leader because Labour has no chance in 2020 – indeed, will not be able to assemble the motley 40% it needs to win an election until it has remade (or, better still, abolished) itself. That was the argument I put in a Comment is Free piece a couple of weeks ago.

An editor took it seriously, and challenged me to come up with just such a party. “If you were to rebuild a leftwing challenger to the Tories from scratch, what would it look like?” he asked. This was no mean task: how to construct a new party of the left that might win an election and, if it did win, actually do something to change the UK
