Ten days on - inspiration....

Ten days after the results were declared, and much has happened.  Candidates have put themselves forward to be the next Leader, commentators are offering their analysis and we're all wondering what the party needs to do.

We're all, surely, going to need to think carefully, and act.  Here is some inspiration - let us know what you think.

First, Owen Jones;

And here is an outline of the views of Jon Cruddas MP, who has this week launched an independent review into why Labour lost & how we win again. He is keen to involve all of the party and those outside;

And, in case we need reminding that we're doing this in full view of the media and the other parties, this is what the Sunday Telegraph said this weekend;

Here in Central Devon we hope hope all those of you who gave such invaluable support with the Campaign and want to be involved in the future will stay in touch.  Look out for details of our next meeting here soon....

I was very pleased to see that John McDonnell, MP for Hayes and Harlington, has set up a new web-site. Called Radical Labour (http://radical-labour.co.uk/index.html) it will interest those of us in the CLP who are on the left and are not attracted to the candidates for the leadership election who have so far either declared or shown an interest. All of them are on the Blairite wing of the party, and socialists have been strangely silent.

In his introduction, which is headed “Let’s transform this leadership election into a real debate about the future of socialism, our party and our country”, John McDonnell says " I am launching this website to host a debate on the issues the Labour leadership candidates have to address and to promote some of the ideas and policies people think any new leader should adopt."

So far, there are two articles. Take a look.
