Miliband’s timidity is alarming some Labour right wingers leave alone the few lefties still in the party. Lead down to 1% in the polls. The endlessly repeated mantra ‘ hard working families’, the likes of Rachel Reeve committing Labour to tory spending plans and welfare cuts, the waffling refusal to answer simple questions by party spokespeople.
There is a huge gap to the left of Labour – there for the taking. The last week has seen members of Left Unity coming forward as CW candidates and a positive endorsement from Johnny Void in one of the most read political blogs in the country. Small things in themselves but in politics momentum is everything. We have it.
