Labour’s dismal performance in Eastbourne elections
From: Peter RolfeLushington Lane,Eastbourne
Another round of elections has produced another dismal performance by the Labour Party in Eastbourne
With the Party nationally trying to turn the clock back to the days of Blair, Brown and Milliband and the local party’s ineffective and superficial campaigning, more interested in stopping activism in its own ranks than getting elected, what chance is there for anyone, like me, opposed to Neo-liberalism, to have someone to vote for?
Ultimately, it’s the fault of the members who don’t go to meetings, allowing those who do go to repeatedly vote for more of the same, which inevitably, repeatedly, leads to the same outcome.
The Conservatives and Liberal Democrats are delighted with the poor showing of Labour in Eastbourne which currently presents no threat to them.
Perhaps, some day, their members will have the interest and courage to make the necessary changes and maybe then, they can then get my vote.
