As it stands we have at least seven splinter Left groups I'm aware of with only one of these making a concerted effort to organise for the English locals - the TUSC has more than 350 candidates presently, however, Reform UK already has 500 candidates and intends to contest all seats at the next GE - obviously they have access to funds that the Left do not have, and this is related to the Trades Unions.
Now, what is the strategy of any Left grouping, well its quite simple, aim for a minimum 5% of the vote at a GE and win a few Council seats in the meantime, i.e., do a UKIP to force Labour Left.
Now, events in Scotland are interesting, namely all major parties with the exception of the Scottish Tories and Alba are captured by Trans ideology, something that the Scottish electorate opposes by a large majority - in the UK Parties, the Greens are captured, the Labour Party is capture, not too sure about Lib Dems. Its this Trans issue that seems the next break point in UK politics, as Brexit was and you can bet the Tories and Reform UK will exploit it - its this issue also that's stopping cooperation between Left groups, with only the TUSC coalition having nothing whatsoever to do with the crap as its self evidently tied to neoliberalism, i.e., hyper individualism, which is not collective shall we say.
I'm helping out with the TUSC as sitting on a fence hoping for the actual Left to get real has not happened, so choices must be made.
