The future left: red, green and republican?
We know that the left must be red and green. It needs to be red in that it should incorporate the left’s historic commitments to economic, social and political equality. It should be green in frankly and fully accepting the constraint of environmental sustainability. But should the left of the future also be republican?
So starts an interesting article in Red Pepper. Mebyon Kernow, Plaid and the SNP, along with their other allies in the European Free Alliance, to my mind, already meet the 'red and green' criteria. As a republican I can only hope for a bold commitment to republicanism as well.
