Neal Lawson, chair of Compass who are co-sponsoring Change:HOW? writes for LabourList:

"Ed won’t talk to Nicola. Nicola won’t talk to David and neither will Natalie nor Leanne. Nick won’t to Nigel but David might.

This lunacy is what happens when multi party complexity is rammed into a two party constitution.

"Everyone who wants a good society is going to have to grow up, be more open, honest and humble. And all of them are going to have to talk – building trust and understanding in advance of NOC.
