McDonnell: Electoral annihilation means change or die

5th June 2009

Labour has now lost control of Derbyshire, Lancashire, Nottinghamshire and Staffordshire as the Party’s vote has collapsed. It is now clear that Labour is facing the prospect of annihilation in a General Election.
John McDonnell MP, LRC Chair, said:

“It is clear from the results that Labour is facing annihilation. Reshuffles will not be enough. Labour now needs a wholesale and urgent change in policy if the Party is to avoid wipeout at the next General Election.

“Labour voters are peeling off in all directions - which shows there is no automatic transfer to the Conservatives, but also shows that with a radical change of policy there could be all to play for.”
