Today via Twitter and Facebook we asked for your responses to our #CommonDebate feature
AS part of Scotland’s new media, what you think about the news is a top priority for CommonSpace – we want to know how you feel about major news stories, and what events you think should be getting attention.
Your views on news issues are incredibly important to us, and we want you to be involved every step of the way. Whenever there’s a big question or issue drawing public attention, we’ll use the #CommonDebate hashtag to make sure your voice is heard.
Today’s #CommonDebate question was: ‘As the leadership vote looms, where do you see the Labour party in five years?’ We’ve collated some of your great responses below.
@TheCommonSpace A party split. Neither one able to win enough support for a generation or 3. Or it will cease entirely. Euthanised.

For some, a split seemed like the most likely outcome, although others wondered if the certainty of separation would depend on the result of the upcoming leadership vote.

Survival and devolution were common themes among your responses which looked at a split in more detail.
@TheCommonSpace Few people are interested in pure socialism; a mixed and above all fair economy is desired, with stability AND freedom.

Others offered a more philosophical critique that focused on future stability.
The responses on our facebook live feed were not hopeful that there was a future for the Labour party at all.

@TheCommonSpace Jeremy Corbyn resigns after losing 2020 election. Hilary Benn takes over. Put yer hoose on it 😉

Of course, some of your responses took a more humourous view of the future. CommonSpace does not encourage betting based on these predictions, but if you do win a fortune keep us in mind.
We’d also like to thank everyone who responded, and encourage you all to get involved in our next #CommonDebate on Twitter or Facebook, or even tell us what you think about today’s question in the comments below.
