Agree with your comments.

Reading your comments I see a difference in your views to those of the Far Right of the party e.g. your views on public service reform and your support for Ed Miliband.

The thing that is frustrating me about the party at present is a void at its heart. You've got the hardline Blairites who still seem to wield considerable power in terms of Progress and seem to be less than supportive of the current leadership. Then in terms of NEC elections you have the Grassroots Alliance who are a fairly motley bunch probably a third of which I would favour and two thirds of which I wouldn't e.g. CLPD members vehmently opposed to electoral reform.

The Blue Labour stuff seems reactionary and worrying.
