Anti-War Party

There’s going to be a new political party in town if George Monbiot gets his way. Ignoring the recent low turnout of the anti-occupation march George and sundry other “anti-war” types are planning to go head on against Labour in the next local elections on a political platform which is still being decided.

One of the other potential co-founders Selma Yaqoob said

“The strength of the anti-war march was the diversity of protesters: people came from different backgrounds, faiths and political affiliations.

That’s true – and that’s also the reason I predict they won’t attract very many votes as a political organisation.
