|Time to split - with comrades like these who needs Labour?|
He was kindly answering questions online to Guardian readers recently and mentioned that his new party will look to establish co-operations with other left parties in Europe, such as Die Linke (the former East German Communists) and Syriza. I am not sure that either of those will be much amused about this offer, given that both parties actually win votes (Die Linke is even in government in some German states), which is clearly something that Loach's party can only dream of. Yet, every revolution starts with a dream, or shall we say with false consciousness?
I will bet a great British pound (ONE!) that Loach's party will not even get their deposit back if they ever muster to put up a candidate in a general election. Anyone???
