Interesting video regarding modern political history. A reminder also that there should never be any "no go" areas for Labour. In this by election they concentrated on Tory plans to privatise the NHS (plus ça change, plus c’est pareil) and won (then lost then won again then lost)
Labour can (and has) won in rural Britain. In fact this was where the Labour movement came from - Tolpuddle Martyrs.
