Labour NEC Favourite: Winning in 2020 Not a Priority

rhea

Rhea Wolfson is the left’s candidate to replace Ken on the Labour NEC. Last year she wrote a blog for the London Young Labour website in which she argued that Labour should not consider electoral success in 2020 a priority. The post has since been deleted, but you can read it here:

“Is winning in 2020 the priority and if so, what are we willing to sacrifice to achieve it? My belief is that winning 2020 should not be the priority of the Labour Party. This belief comes from a further belief that the Labour party is a movement above and beyond anything…

I’ve read quite a lot recently statements in the realm of You change opinions from inside government- why don’t the left understand that? and whilst there is some truth there, my fear is what happens in reality (as I think is exemplified by Liz Kendall’s campaign) is that you have members who continue to say that as we sit in government. Those policies got us elected becomes these policies will keep us elected and we end up with the reality that is a Labour government, unrecognisable from its values (and its members) and a reality where the only opinions that get changed are our own.”

So the Corbynista candidate for the NEC says there is no point in winning elections if it means compromising your purist values. You can see why they tried to erase it from the internet…
