"Disastrous as a campaigning message."
It seems to me that, whatever happens over leaving Europe, politics are never going to be the same again in British Politics
Johnson and his wrecking gang have more or less wrecked any pretence of democracy now and whatever party replaces him (he can't possibly continue) can forget about taking over as if nothing has happened
What should Labour campaigning on ?
It seems to me that if the UK is to survive, in or out of Europe, its political structures have to be rebuilt
I gave up voting when Blair's mob removed any chance of a better society from Labour's aims - I became interested again when Corbyn became talking about changing society - it seems to me that could be lost by compromising on those changes with a coalition of the same-cold, same old, with the shelving of the ideal that Labour has, or should have stood for
Rather than narrow the gap between haves and have-nots, the loss of investment and yet more British industries has widened it considerably
THe last coalition Ireland's Labour Party entered into set it back decades - I would hate Corbyn to fall into the same trap
