New Labour Leader?

We will find out later today whether the Labour Party have elected a new leader. It may turn out to be one of the most significant events in determining the outcome of the next general election. Whoever wins the Labour Party seem determined to head off in an increasingly hard left direction which I suspect is not what most voters want. At the last election the view of those who were undecided whether to support Labour or the Conservatives – and as always there were many – was not ‘If only Labour would be more left-wing’. No, under Ed Miliband they were concerned it was already too left-wing. It is difficult to see how adopting a more extreme left wing agenda will help Labour win a general election – and Labour MP’s know it!
