Young Tory voter and Brexiteer Alice grant argued that the Labour party has lost any chance of winning an election as it fails to resonate with working-class voters. She also attacked the party for MPs and labour leadership candidates still attempting to stop Brexit from happening and not learning from the former leader Jeremy Corbyn. Ms Grant also hinted the UK shift to Conservatism may be long-lasting due to the failings of the Labour Party.
During an interview with Purple Tories, she said: “If the Labour Party continue to peddle their crazy identity politic obsessed ideology then people are never going to vote for them.
“Because that will not resonate with good hard working Britains.
“Even more so if you add the topic of Brexit.
“The Labour Party are still trying to find a way to thwart and overturn the Brexit vote.
“Yeah okay, good luck but they will never gain a majority with that kind of attitude so we could be seeing a longterm shift towards Conservative Politics.”
The young Tory supporter admitted that she did admire some former Labour MPs and could appreciate the Labour Partys of the past.
She continued: “I feel it is such a shame because Labour as it was with people like Michael Foot and Tony Benn, I could have seen myself voting for them if it existed.
“But the problem is it doesn’t anymore.
“Instead, it has been replaced with this London-centric EU fanatic elite who are so obsessed with globalism and leftism and pushing things like a green new deal.
“That is just not at all what the Labour Party was originally meant to and for.
“So they have lost that and lost any chance of ever winning an election.”
Of the Labour leadership campaign, Rebecca Long-Bailey is the candidate considered to be closest to Jeremy Corbyn.
The shadow business secretary, who launched her leadership campaign in Manchester on Friday evening, was welcomed on stage by Jeremy Corbyn’s supporter singing “Oh Rebecca Long-Bailey”.
Ms Long-Bailey took the stage smiling and pleased for the warm welcome received. She joked: “Hey guys, you’re going to have to think of a new song, you know? No pressure!”
Ms Long-Bailey, believed to be the continuity candidate, scored a significant boost in her quest to lead the party after securing the backing of the Momentum campaign group on Thursday.
The party front-bencher promised to end the “gentlemen’s club of politics” by devolving power out of Westminster, while pledging to introduce a “Green New Deal” that unites Labour heartlands.
