Apocalypse Delayed Why the Left is Still in Trouble
By Nick Tyrone
The 2017 general election was meant to result in a landslide victory for the Conservative Party. Instead, we saw a hung parliament in its wake. The election was also supposed to end in a loss of possible party-finishing proportions for Labour. As it happens, Labour gained around thirty seats nationwide, including in Wales and Scotland, places which looked impossible before May had decided to call the poll.
The outcome of the election has made Jeremy Corbyn and his acolytes invincible within the Labour Party, with all naysayers silenced for now by the shock result. Apparently, all that will be required now is ‘one last heave’ to get Corbyn into No. 10.
But what if the left’s problems run much deeper than that? Furthermore, what if 2017 was a freak result, one that will force the left to go down a road that will ultimately end in the wipe-out we expected last time round? What if the situation we’re in now is simply one of ‘apocalypse delayed’ for the British left? This book examines where the Tories, Labour and everyone else in between sits now – and where that might lead us all next.
