Opinion: The accepted left-wing of British politics was nicely occupied by the Labour Party for decades. After a series of reformations and makeovers the party's identity became muddied.
If it is not on the left of politics surely it is irrelevant?
Gone are the days of a two-Party system with the old Liberal party filling the centre ground but failing to form a government.
Change can be good; moving with the times is essential; but where you draw the line matters.
Old Labour, New Labour, Momentum, The Fabian Society, Progress, Saving Labour and now Labour Tomorrow.
The last, Labour Tomorrow, may be new to you but that could soon change. The rest are existing groups within the Party or an earlier state of play.
So what is Labour Tommorow and who is behind it.
Brenda Zaman on Facebook writes "Electoral Commission records show the hedge fund manager Martin Taylor, who under Ed Miliband's leadership donated £600,000 to the party, has given £180,000 to the group. Labour Tomorrow was founded by the former Gordon Brown aide Nicola Murphy.
Her fellow directors are former home secretary Lord Blunkett and Labour peer Baroness Dean. The Liberal Democrat peer Lord Oakeshott - who has also funded Labour candidates like Dan Jarvis in the past - has given £25,000. The group was founded in April but records on Companies House show that Lord Blunkett and Lady Dean were not appointed until 28 June - at the start of the coup by Labour moderates to try to unseat Mr Corbyn."

Tuesday Sky News opted for "Anti-Corbyn Group Amasses £250,000 Fighting Fund" as title for a Labour Tomorrow report
It seems those who have done deals behind closed doors and worked to remove Corbyn as Labour Party leader are out of the closet and getting ready for their next move. SkyNews continues "Influential Labour moderates are raising cash to battle Jeremy Corbyn's Momentum campaign and "rebalance" the party."
That is a great deal of hyperbole.
For moderates replace with centre, right of centre and right wing of Labour.
For influential replace with wealthy.
Money talks and is playing its part in the coup and Labour Party struggles.
Owen Smith and his team may not like the words plot, plotters and coup but they are all valid. Plans to remove Corbyn were hatched before he was elected.
Why is a Liberal Democrat Peer investing in Labour Tomorrow?
"Matthew Alan Oakeshott, Baron Oakeshott of Seagrove Bay, is a British investment manager and member of the House of Lords, formerly sitting in Parliament as a Liberal Democrat." He was expelled from the Liberal Democratic Party. Isabel Oakeshott, a distant cousin, was involved in Cameron's piggate as a part author of Call Me Dave.
In January 2015 he made a huge cash donation to the Labour Party but why?
Oakeshott worked in the Ministry of Finance and Economic Planning of Kenya from 1968 to 1970. During 1970 to 1972, he undertook post-graduate studies at Nuffield College, Oxford, although he did not complete a graduate degree. He joined the Labour Party and served as a Councillor on Oxford City Council.
That tells me he is a very wealthy man but also has flip flop politics. He may also have his own agenda.
But while those with wealth screw with the Labour Party and our democracy some of the poorest and most vulnerable people of the UK are left to struggle on.
Labour Tomorrow is a watch this space project. "It will provide funds for centre-Left political bloggers, activists and campaigners in an attempt to "re-build" the Labour party after successive election failures" reports Sky News.
Is it only that or is it set to be a new Labour Party? Will it launch if Corbyn is re-elected party leader? If it divides Labour in much the same way the gang of four did in the 80's the only big winner will be the Tory Party. Will they hope to take the role of the official opposition in the House of Commons?
But what will you do when they want support?
I will say thanks but no thanks..
Looking at their website it is all about money and buying support.
Why would I trust my vote and or support to devious, flip flop politicians with money to burn who want to buy democracy in the UK?
I would rather not vote.
Should I apply for funding for this Corbyn orientated website or does my support for that man make me a hard-left Trotskyite?
Do we really need bought and paid for political bloggers?
