‘Break the mould’ of British politics? New Blairite party will be as mouldy as the rest

A new political party, formed in 2016 (the same time as the so-called ‘Chicken Coup’ by Blairites against Jeremy Corbyn), to occupy the so-called (again) centre-left of politics vacated by Labour?

This would be the centre-right party we all thought the Blairites would split from Labour to create, back at the time of the abortive coup, then.

A gang of political has-beens dedicated to the preservation of the neoliberal status quo at all costs.

Not attractive to the masses. I await evidence that I am mistaken. I expect to wait a long time.

A new political party with access to up to £50m in funding has been secretly under development for more than a year by a network of entrepreneurs, philanthropists and donors keen to “break the Westminster mould”, the Observer can reveal.

The movement, spearheaded by a former Labour benefactor, is understood to have been drawn up by a group frustrated by the tribal nature of politics, the polarisation caused by Brexit and the standard of political leadership on all sides. It appears to have a centrist policy platform that borrows ideas from both left and right.

Senior figures from the worlds of business and charity are understood to be involved, as well as former supporters of the main parties, including a number of former Tory donors.

5 Thoughts to “‘Break the mould’ of British politics? New Blairite party will be as mouldy as the rest”

  1. Wonder which one dare break away from the Labour Party 1st? Once gone, No coming back. They won’t dare they would be to afraid that their nose would be out of the trough.

  2. NMac

    Playing into the hands of the Tory “divide and rule” tactics.

  3. I don’t think one of them would retain their deposit!
    Not if they explained exactly what their manifesto contained. There’s already to many of these types in Lab / Con / Libs as it is.
    What we really need is transparency about the ‘candidate’ we’re supposed to be voting for. They become MP’s under ‘Party Policy’, but as Zionist, have their own agenda, which is killing society from with in! We need to know if they’re Zionists, so we can properly gauge our vote!

  4. Looks like the thoughts of Jeremy Corbyn getting in and the fact that they know the Tories are dead meaning the games are up so a simple thing to do is start a new party and make people think it as there interests at heart remember the LibDem’s much the same thing at the time

  5. aunty1960

    Done this before, never lasted or wanted whether SDP and Liberals and Liberal Democrates. Nobody votes in mass for the compromise guy or the annexing of British Politics

    But do agree, it is a mess, no Leadership that convinces the majority but splits it parties in disarray, inbickering and divisions on brexit and cuts etc.
