The hard left have been the tail wagging the Labour dog on and off for decades. The same is true of the hard right in the Conservative party and they have been more effective.
Neither has been really in tune with the British public hence our elections and referenda have produced strings of perverse results. The recent EU referendum is a prime example and it has exposed the divisions in both parties.
Surely it’s time for radical change, really radical change, not just in the parties but in Parliament, something like the Reform Acts of 1832/1833.
THE PARTIES WOULD THEN HAVE TO ADAPT TO THE SYSTEM NOT, AS NOW, THE OTHER WAY ROUND, WITH THE ANCIENT SYSTEM CREAKING TO ACCOMODATE THE PARTIES.
