What’s the point of Open Labour?

We’ve had overwhelmingly positive feedback over social media since our online launch last week. We would like to thank everyone for signing up, and contributing to debate!

One thing that has arisen a few times however is the current state of factionalism in the Labour Party and the amount of groupings arising. To be honest, we think people can be forgiven for this – there is a lot of huddling going on. On the other hand, after a second election defeat and a change of party, one would expect the clamour for rethinking and renewal to be a loud one.

If you want an explanation of where we fit in and how we could be important, York Councillor David Levene has a good post up on LabourList this morning.
