Very much agree with this. Also worth noting that First Past the Post, which favours a 2-party system, means that there is a greater need for pragmatism when seeking political influence. I.e. most voters will have to engage with a party that doesn't reflect their views well, compared to under PR. So those who wish not to join Labour for ideological reasons should consider that a level of pragmatism is required in FPTP.
