Classic triangulation here

I read this article by Samuel Stopp (Labour councillor for Brent’s Wembley Central Ward) with interest:  http://www.leftfootforward.org/2014/06/how-labour-drove-the-lib-dems-out-of-brent/

However I think he is misinterpreting the trends.

Labour is becoming the party of minorities - specifically BME minorities in urban areas and public sector workers nationwide.

That is becoming their core constituency.

We have classic triangulation here.

UKIP on the right and Labour on the left is repositioning the Conservatives in the centre ground without the Tories having to do anything.
