We Need An Alternative

My contribution to series of articles by the New Left Project on the aftermath of the election

The moment that I realised that yet again I would be unable to join in, herd-like, with something that people were saying was vital and urgent was when I heard the roar of approval for Nick Clegg. I’m talking, of course, about the ‘purple revolt’ of Take Back Parliament, the coalition protesting outside of the Liberal Democrat headquarters on Saturday.

We do need an alternative to neoliberalism and the what is being offered by the mainstream parties...cuts, cuts and vicious nasty cuts. I think we need something that encompasses activists, TUs, Labour Left, lefties etc. all coming together to form a progressive (true meaning of the word as opposed to a Lib/Lab coalition!). The left has the experts on economics etc. we have the capability, ability and knowledge to build something solid ....but you know the Brit Left and alliances....

But I still will reiterate...John McDonnell 4 Leader!

Btw: stuff purple Kevin, you need to wear red!!
