Where next for the Labour Party?



  1. Labour is flatlining.

Opinions polls bad.

SNP as strong as ever.

Luckily for Labour Lib Dems are feeble.  Bad leader.

No sign of defections to Lib Dems because Lib Dems are so weak.


2. Corbyn may face another coup.

Moderates conspiring

Re-selection partly owing to seats reduction.

Back to the 80s.

Labour should do far better – slowing economy, doctors’ strike, austerity midterm.



3. Prospects for next election look grim.

Lucky  for Labour there are fixed term elections

Labour cannot win in England alone.

UKIP threat may recede.

May more popular.

Economy may grow again by 2020 and Brexit may succeed. But if not Corbyn is still pledged to Brexit.


4. Labour is not a spent force.

Millions identify with it

Trades unions

Support for public services.

Opposition to austerity.

Labour has been written off before
