Labour has let the fight over Brexit distract it from defeating the Tories | Polly Toynbee
The vote against remain at conference will bitterly disappoint members and divert energy from defeating Boris JohnsonThe best and the worst of Labour are locked in mortal combat at their conference, less left and right, more the admirable and the despicable, often tussling within the souls of the very same players. This can be a detestable party, yet in its next breath the most uplifting, a soaring then plummeting rollercoaster to observe.Admirable visions of all that could be under a Labour government were spelled out in John McDonnell’s radical stream of policies to make bad working lives better. Some working conditions have reverted to brutish pre-union days: the care workers, delivery drivers, warehouse pickers, overworked and underpaid. Ken Loach’s latest harrowing horror movie, Sorry We Missed You, previewed here, is a heartrending depiction of the working wrongs that McDonnell addresses. Shorter working hours and better pay are only part of Labour’s intent to shift the share of income, power and wealth at least back to where it was 40 years ago. Labour’s Green New Deal is a double win, decarbonising energy, insulating homes and bringing green industries to areas in most need of good jobs. From speech to speech, on offer are remedies for the decade of stagnant wages. Continue reading...
