The case for voting Labour……

…not that you’d know it from the slightly odd headline on the piece in the latest issue of Red Pepper, in which I debate the choice facing us in the upcoming election, with Mike Mansfield QC, he of the extraordinary court room confidence and flowing locks.

In short, MM thinks the current system and New Labour are bankrupt of integrity and ideas and that we need creative renewal through refusal ( meaning not voting Labour, except in exceptional circumstances.) I make the less exciting case for voting Labour but continuing the pressure on the party and government to radicalise their policies.
