    Corbyn launches community campaign unit.

    Post by papa_umau on Mon 08 Jan 2018, 11:39 am

    Labour hopes to encourage communities to organise around local issues and develop campaigns with a new team.

    The unit - which gets up and running on Monday - will target seaside towns and traditional Labour heartlands, where the party needs to rebuild support.

    The strategy is designed to help Labour make inroads in the dozens of seats it needs to win to get into power.
    Leader Jeremy Corbyn said he hoped an approach of "empowering people" would "further invigorate" his party.

    I guess we all know that the Labour Party has to be re-invigorated from the grass-roots up and this might be one of the ways it can be done.

    Best of luck to him as he has a mountain to climb to be successful in this attempt.

    That is just another way to appeal to the grass-roots supporters of old, as a lot of Labour supporters of the past have drifted away from their traditional positions.

    The result that Blair showed by the way he turned Labour into some kind of mini-Tory-party certainly did the trick as he drew many of the floating voters to his support.

    Of course his "New Labour" did not play out well after the same bunch of voters felt let down by his strange version of the Labour party.

    Maybe Corbyn can win them back, but he has a very long way to go to emulate Blair.

    I say...the best of luck to Corbyn as he is going to need it if he is going to do a Blair without stealing votes from the Tories, as New Labour did.

    Yes, they are totally different people with Blair leaning to the right and Corbyn leaning far to the left.

    To bring the Labour Party back to it's original glory days will be a tall order for anyone.
