Labour Together ‘general election review’ is best avoided by Labour’s left majority
Labour Together and LabourList have launched a ‘cross-factional review’ of the general election result that they say will be ‘independent, and… made up of people who believe that Labour will only be successful if it moves past factionalism’.
However, Labour Together was created after Jeremy Corbyn’s election as Labour leader, as a means of bringing together New Labour and Blue Labour – Blairites and the ‘conservative’ Labour right.
More recently – just in June of this year – Labour Together said that the party had to move beyond the ‘politics of hate’ and ‘faction and personality’, in what was seen as a clear attack on Jeremy Corbyn and his supporters.
Labour Together is also a limited company registered at Companies House. Lisa Nandy, one of the MPs said to have hopes of the Labour leadership, is a director – as is Trevor Chinn, one of Tom Watson’s main donors.
Labour members should steer clear.
