More like London UNISON public school network if you ask me.

Sorry marra -grew up in the North east -which I love dearly -and where only the daft buggers went to public school. Me -eleven plus and Girls High School. Joined the Youth wing of local Labour Party but full of daft lads who talked big and did nowt.Not much changed there but hung on to Labour credentials out of regional and political loyalty but most importantly out of family loyalty -but kept thinking why all the way. Still do -we all should.

And we should always keep thinking keep questioning and keep challenging what is happening and about where the party is going.That is the point surely.

To accept unquestioningly everything we are told is a betrayal of our conscience and humanity.
Oh dear me -that is very serious for a Saturday night!Kat
