On voting Labour in the U.K. election

Standard

“ This election cannot be about grabbing on to any fragile sapling you see, as you hurtle into a Tory landslide. It cannot be about throwing your lot in with the diehard tribalists, and voting Labour in the hope that one day in the future, Labour will become a united and dominant force again, by changing utterly into something you can’t imagine. It has to be about changing the way we do politics – which might well, indeed, probably will involve voting Labour, but in the spirit not of resignation but of radicalism and renewal ”

Zoe Williams, ‘We’ll be sneered at, but a progressive alliance can win’, The Guardian
