What do you think – is this a good idea or will it sink Labour’s poll ratings?

One of Jeremy Corbyn’s key allies has made a bold suggestion that Labour could form progressive alliances or electoral pacts with other parties across the left including the Greens, Liberal Democrats and SNP.

Clive Lewis, the shadow defence secretary, raised the suggestion of an alliance with Caroline Lucas of the Greens in an article for the Guardian, arguing that grouping together with others on the left is necessary and would lead to better decisions.

“Such progressive alliances are now essential not just because that is the only way we can beat the Tories but because that is the way we will make better decisions and take more of the country with us,” he said.
