Labour leadership candidate backs coalition of resistance

It's very welcome news that Diane Abbott is supporting the call for a coalition of resistance initiated by Tony Benn and 73 others last week. This is from her campaign website:

“Tony’s campaign echoes many of my policies that I would look to carry out as Leader of the Labour Party, but also as a single mother and as a MP for an inner city borough, who will feel these cuts the hardest.

We need to join together to speak out and protect the welfare state and stop these devastating Lib-Con cuts.

Scrapping Trident is the best way to raise the money we need to tackle the deficit and invest in the public sector, and I’m glad Tony’s campaign is fighting for this.

Together I hope we can make a real difference.”
