Boring I know! But I am supporting Labour!

Its boring to say this I know! But I shall be supporting Labour.
That means the ‘warts and all Labour’. Loyalty to the Party means that we should be doing all we can for the greater good.
Leaders come and leaders go. Some have been great. Some have been mediocre. Some I have supported, some have made me want to drop down into the ‘crack in the floor’.
But Labour and all it represents has been based around having broad public appeal. If we do not have public appeal, we will not win the next General Election. We will not win if sections of the Party cannot get behind the leadership. Creating divisions now, will make it even harder after the internal Party election results have been announced…..
Lets recognise that, the press & media have enjoyed all the splits we have engendered in this contest to lead Labour.
They have sold their products based around the headlines we have provided.
My message to colleagues & comrades is to stop the name calling, and lets start using the energy we have to fight the Government when they announce policy and initiatives that are so very badly set against working people, the young, the unemployed, the weakest sections of our communities, like people with disabilities.
For goodness sake lets start supporting the LABOUR PARTY. As for those MP’s who want to tell everyone whose Cabinet they will serve in, and whose they won’t. Please ‘keep quiet’ about this.
It makes you look spoilt, and a lesser person than you really are. It does the Party no good whatsoever, and it garners even less support in the Party for your announced candidate. Councillor Phil Bateman 
I have written before about  the fact that I cannot wait to see this fractious contest ending, I feel doubly stronger about this than I previously did!
