Howard Beckett’s grassroots campaign teams have founded a new, working-class pro-democracy movement with the aim of preventing ‘machine politics’ from destroying democracy with trade unions, following his decision this morning to step out of the Unite leadership contest.
Beckett’s former campaign accounts on social media have been rebadged as ‘Ordinary Left’, the name of the new grouping. Search your preferred social media platform for your nearest group and follow to keep up with the new campaign (the group’s new Facebook page is here).
