Like many centre-left symapathisers and voters, I am just as sick of the current state of the Labour party. Jeremy Corbyn is well behind in the polls, and the party is riddled with infighting from top to bottom. However, I feel it is important that we, the people, can change this... maybe not now, but in the future. Right now, there are people who are desperate for a decent and effective oppostion, but it is divided- no, I'm not talking about Labour, but those organisations who are representing the marginalised, the pro-Europeans, refugees, benefit claimants, the working class, small businesses, the non-voters, and so on... those who desperately need help from their potential allies in Parliament. If only the Lib Dems, SNP, Plaid Cymru, Greens, and independents can put their tribal nonsense to one side and try to harness all that energy to fight the Conservative government. This should signal the beginning of a major political realignment that the UK desperately needs. The Conservatives will win this time, but they don't own the future. We also need to be brave in telling the Labour party of Corbyn, McDonell, Abbott and Thornbury to get out of the way- WE NEED TO PUNISH THEM AT THE POLLS, both local and national, and at the same time, we fight for REAL CHANGE for the UK. The current situation is unacceptable.
