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.
