So fellow Labour Party members.
It looks like we’re in for a torrid time.
I hope there might be some last minute change of mind.
But sadly it really does look like we’re going to go through a bitter and divisive leadership contest.
So before it starts, I wanted to say this.
The Labour Party isn’t a ‘broad church.’
Yes we’re a family that has more than its fair share of fall outs and disputes.
But we still share the same values.
And when times are tough, we always pull together.
So however this ends, please remember we are all family.
And family sticks together.
I don’t want to see us split.
So let’s get through this in a comradely way.
Your fellow members aren’t traitors or trots.
They’re just people that have a slightly different view and perception of how we want to see democratic socialism.
If we fall out and fall apart, we’ll be giving a free pass to what could be the most right wing government this country has ever seen.
The public need us.
So please let’s hold it together and get through this as quickly and painlessly as possible.
As it says on the back of all our cards…
“by the strength of our common endeavour we achieve more than we do alone.”
Let’s stay positive.
