As I have already said here , I am no longer in The Labour Party .
I am , currently, much taken with the new Northern Independence Party .
How they pan out is unclear. It's very early days.
They only have 5 candidates standing in the coming local elections ,plus Thelma Walker the former Labour MP for Colne Valley, who is standing for them in the Hartlepool by-election .( who will be lucky not to lose her deposit)
They are (like me) Corbyn Refugees .Socialists. I can't fault their logic. I hope they establish themselves and ( at the very least) give the Starmeristas a sharp nudge and stand candidates in every Northen seat ( they even talking of standing a candidate in Holborn , Starmer's seat)
Anyway ,its a long-term thing .Much will change before 2024
They pubished their Manifesto this week.Read it here .Personally, I can find no fault here https://www.freethenorth.co.uk/ourfuture
