Why doesn't the Labour Party just split in two and become two separate parties, one left of centre and one left of left?
Currently they spend all their time fighting each other rather than providing any coherent opposition and they have been like that for most of this century. There is no use blaming individual leaders, they are the merely the ones tossed temporarily to the surface as a result of all the infighting
There is nothing more unedifying to the wider electorate than the constant abuse and character assasinations between the two groups, wonderfully exemplified by threads like those on GN.
The two groups have less in common with each other than they do with the Conservatives and their constant infighting is losing them votes, even among their staunchest supporters.
Let us have two parties, united within themselves, putting forward clear policies that each party is agreed on. Currently to vote Labour is a real leap in the dark, you may vote for the side that is currently in the acendent with its choice of policies that you agree with, but in anything from a week to several years, the other half take over and you are stuck with a ramp of policies you abhor.
Those to the left should stand up and proudly call themselves 'The Socialist Party', because that is what they are, The rest can resurect the name 'Social Democrats'. No one will confuse them with the other group with that name umpteen years ago and it will align both groups with party names used elsewhere in Western Europe.
