    Default For an alternative Europe: A fundamental step for building progressive alliances

    http://www.european-left.org/alterna...sive-alliances

    Last weekend. British Labour finally showed at a Euro left event (Die Linke to Podemos, etc). 1st I heard of the event apart from vague ref . Sadly only Sinn Fein showed from Ireland . Media coverage of these things is all but non existent outside Euro Left outlets http://www.european-left.org/alterna...sive-alliances

    But UK Labour is still a member of PES, like Labour here. That may restrict them from forming other left links in Europe.

    The PES is likely moribond (and got further fuzzed with the EP name change), the Socialist International likely all but dead and already split anyhow . I imagine they can easily be ignored as they were just fig leafs to internationalism and never had real authority or confidence (in the SI case, certainly not since it emerged Mubarack's party was a member) . Their lack of reality was always a source of dis-appointment to me . If the Euro Left thing might be a start to building something better I would welcome it
