Should I stay or should I go?

Alice Mahon
I have spent most of my life working for and representing the Labour Party. I always took the view that I should stay and fight within, but New Labour have done such a good job of demolishing our democratic structure that I realised there was nothing I could say or do to change things from within.

Rebels should rebel and not give up ... It is much more fun to be expelled from an organisation on an issue of principle, than just to pack it in.
It is the existence of such a sharp dilemma, rather than the choice made, which is the problem.
