    ?The future of the Labour Party

    I am middle-aged unions’ member. I receive a brochure by post in which my unions are concerned about championing LGBT, pushes equality to the point of absurd where newly employed worker is equal to an ‘old’ worker. Ageism is when the young workers are being told what to do. In my workplace one can choose to wear a metal rainbow badge to pledge their ‘support for LGBT’. How relevant is this to an ordinary worker?
    LP is no longer working class party. It literally takes mickey out of the working class . I remember times of Solidarnosc in Poland. This was a robust trade union movement which eroded the principles of the Polish United Labour Party (PZPR). I think that trade unions must stop pandering to identity groups but shift their focus to ‘a working man/woman’. Plainly to the matters related to work.
