Working people desert Labour in droves

The Tories beat Labour in Wales! The SNP beat Labour in Scotland! The Greens beat Labour in the South East & South West region! These are truly shocking results for Labour. In some of the most deprived and depressed areas of the country, where industries and jobs have collapsed the BNP have gained seats. We could see a real danger, in next years local elections, that some cities and towns could even seen the fascists gain control of some town halls -Burnley and Stoke on Trent for example. The right in the Labour party have not realised that simply changing their leader is not going to save their seats. The Greens have gained thousands of votes, 100,000 in the South East, but the very limited regional list system has failed to reward its massive increase in support.
