Problem is that they then effectively condemn themselves to even more irrelevance. And the reality is that the Left within Labour tend to be far more active on a local level.

And they do get results, albeit on a micro-level but there is a formula that can work for them.

For example down in Woking, Labour are doing really well, thanks to a very active and well organised local party. Ditto up in Preston where they actually have some ideas worth studying.

Let's not forget that a Corbyn led Labour party pulled in 40% of the vote in 2017, a fact that a lot of people, including many of those in the Labour Party at the moment, seem to want to pretend did not happen, especially given Starmer's instrumental role in helping screw Labour up in 2019.

Now I am always more than happy to mock the Corbynites on all sorts of things and am under no illusions about the ill they wish on people like me but they are much more capable of getting people out to vote than people realise. What they did in 2017, even on the back of perhaps the worst Tory campaign ever (which even then managed to pull in 42%) ever, always needs respecting and keeping an eye on.

 


In 1967, when Polish mercenary Rafal Ganowicz was asked what it felt like to take human life, replied: "I wouldn't know, I've only ever killed communists."

The clue is in the name.
