There needs to be a credible alternative movement to counter the inexorable drag to the right that Blairism has engendered for the last 18 years. Contrary to many media commentators, I believe that there is more of an appetite for more left wing ideas than many believe, especially amongst the young who are being systematically disenfranchised by the ruling regime, unfortunately enabled by the current labour leadership. (As far as I am concerned HH's stance on the welfare bill was shameful, and AB's equally risible).
I work for a local housing charity/association and I can see how support for those most vulnerable in society is being corroded systematically on a daily basis, dressed up as the war on "scroungers", (despite more than 50% of housing benefit being awarded to those in work). This narrative really needs to be challenged but I don't see that happening under YC, AB or LK, therefore JC has my vote as things stand. I just want to see a true opposition and just do not see that happening under "Torie-"Lite".
