As the Tories descend further into out-of-touch chaos following a wave of resignations overnight in what passes for their Brexit team, two prominent Labour figures are embarking this week on a tour of the UK that underlines the massive difference between Jeremy Corbyn’s Labour and any of its political rivals.
Derby North MP Chris Williamson and Aslef union boss Tosh McDonald kick off their ‘Democracy Roadshow‘ tour this week of nine towns and cities to talk to Labour Party members about democracy within the Labour Party:
The tour highlights the fact that Labour is far and away the biggest mass-membership political party in the UK – some say in Western Europe – with members engaged enough to care about the democratic processes in their party.
As Williamson states in his voice-over, they are Labour’s biggest strength. No surprise that the media and the party’s internal enemies spend so much time and effort attacking them.
That Labour has MPs and key union figures that look at home riding Harley Davidson ‘hogs’ – the bikes in the video are not hired – presents a massive contrast with stuffy Tories pining for bygone age when the ‘lower orders’ knew their place and shows why Labour can connect with people in a way the Tories simply can’t emulate.
The tour venues and dates are available here. The fact that many of the shows, right from the start, take place in the constituency of ultra-‘centrists’ is surely pure coincidence…
