Local people attempting to shake up local politics
This post arguing for a change in Labour’s leadership appears to miss the glaringly obvious evidence in the data it says justify its point.
Here’s the comparison between June 2016 and June 2021
It seems pretty clear that Labour’s poll share hasn’t altered much, what has changed is the demise of UKIP and unification of the regressive right vote behind the Tories. The progressive left vote share has shuffled and in fact grown. However, the fragmentation of the progressive vote and our First Past The Post voting system means we’re heading for Tory victories.
The only realistic, if difficult, alternative is a progressive alliance. We don’t need a new Labour leader, we need a Labour (and LibDem) leadership willing to work with other parties for the common good.
