Natasha Dyer asks why the left does not make any headway

Article in Left Foot Forward where Natasha Dyer asks why the left does not make any headway:  http://leftfootforward.org/2015/06/why-cant-the-left-get-unified/

The problem for Labour is that the working class is not ideological.

They will vote for parties with policies that they think might benefit them, but they are not interested in socialist ideology for its own sake.

So Labour must either move to the right (which would be pointless, the right is already crowded) or become a lobbying party with no real hope of achieving power.
