Labour lost the general election and went backwards in Trafford. It was bad, unbelievably bad.
Sometimes defeat means you just pick yourselves up, dust yourselves down, and start preparing for next time. But this was seismic. I want to understand better what happened. Kate Green has a survey on her website. I'd really like everyone to complete it. I don't think democracy is served by having an opposition Labour Party kidding itself that it's going to be easy; and I really want to hear from people across the political spectrum including those who voted for other parties, or didn't vote at all.
