My answer to Is the Labour party finished?
Answer by Desmond Last:
As far as I am concerned the Labour Party was finished a long time ago. I do not understand or comprehend how it is that the Party that was formed to end class division and economic serfdom can walk into the House without feeling toallty shamed.
The Labour Party stands for all that the House of Lords is not yet supports this decaying and ridiculous House which never consults with the People for consultation.
Its 800 plus members are not nurses, Policeman, road sweepers, teachers, senior citizens, nor are they homeless or on zero hours contracts or on the minimum wage. The only government body in the world that is bigger is the Chinese National Congress.
The House of Lords is a National Joke and a worldwide laughing stock – they have to go. To be replaced with Community group elected delegates and specialists group representatives.
I do not know what realty bubble Jeremy Corbyn is in but it certainly is not one of a progressive Democratic movement.
The Labour Party should boycott the House of Lords until it has elected representatives of the people by the people and for the people. Then and only then will the Labour Party be one which truly represents the People.
