It’s no coincidence that I’m starting this blog on the 12th of May 2015, just four days after the 2015 UK General Election.

As a left-wing, Labour-supporting, trade-unionist, the outcome of this election (a Tory majority government) is a major disappointment and sets a huge challenge for the British Left.

I hope to use this blog to speak about that challenge and to be part of the public conversation that will hold this right-wing government to account.
