How about the Greens?
Closer to Labour than treacherous Lib-Dems.

I voted Green in a similar situation - it's a wasted vote but it gives you a warm feeling inside.

Not that my opinion will have any effect on yours, but the tribal grudge-bearing in politics is so futile. None of the parties are particularly consistent in their policies over time, the direction changes with the wind of popular opinion and different leaders. Blair was nothing like Kinnock, and Corbyn is nothing like either of them. The Conservatives seem more liberal than Labour nowadays, and personally I thought the Lib Dems did the country a favour by joining the coalition.

The fact Hoey keeps getting elected despite being at odds with her constituents on some big-ticket issues just underlines the stupidity of the political tribes, in my view. A lot of people vote for their party regardless of the candidate and regardless of the manifesto.

I would much rather have Kate Hoey, an independent figure, who fights for her causes and Labour than a puppet of Momentum which is what we could get.
This is not about Kate, Brexit, or the electorate. It is about seizing control of the Labour Party
Absolutely

Independent? She's strapped to the bow of the Brexitanic, heading for the iceberg.
