Yvette Cooper, one of the four candidates to lead the Labour party, has warned. Speaking to BBC Radio 4’s World at One Cooper said:
“The party does seem to be polarising between the different extremes and I don’t think that is the right thing to do. Partly, we want to hold our party together in order to win. Divided parties don’t win, but it’s actually much more than that. I just don’t think the extremes of the party are the right place to be and are true to our values and are true to the things we need to do to change the country for the future”.
