Labour has no roots

It is positions like this that make me angry at the way Labour have moved so far to the centre that they have no Socialist values anymore. None. They just want the vote, they don’t give a crap about the roots of their organisation.

When I talked to 14-year-old Tia this week, she burst into tears as she said she described going without lunch at school. Her family of five is just above free school meal limits, but high rent, council tax and debts leaves them eating mostly soup and lentils.
