Compass' vote on opening out its membership is a sign of the pluralist times | openDemocracy

Following the CRB blog post calling for unity on the ecological left this article -Compass' vote on opening out its membership is a sign of the pluralist times- may be of interest.

At Compass conference I have seen – on the same platform, disagreeing but thinking together – mainstream Labour Party people, Respect members, Green representatives and people from Plaid Cymru. That is a kind of political maturity that all should welcome. The right forms networks naturally – through schools, universities, clubs and workplaces – and coordinates actions collectively to further self-interests. The left is now forming strong and effective networks so that we may, individually, further collective interest.

Would Mebyon Kernow's voice, and that of Cornish devolution in general, get a better hearing from the UK left with a strong Cornish contingency in Compass?
