Shadow housing minister John Healey admitted the Fabian Society’s report was a ‘serious warning’ – but he doesn’t think alliances are the answer
A Labour shadow minister admitted the party’s poll numbers are “awful” today, after research showed they had virtually no chance of winning an election.
Shadow Housing Minister John Healey said a report by the Fabian Society was a “serious warning” to the party.
The report, released this morning, showed Labour was “almost certain” to lose the next election, slumping as low as 20% of the vote and 140 seats in the House of Commons.
The Fabians urged Labour to consider calls for an alliance with the Lib Dems and SNP or other centre-left parties.
But Mr Healey told the BBC the report rightly said the roots of the problem predated Jeremy Corbyn ‘s leadership.
