This week we published Downfall: Is Labour dead and how can radical hope be rebuilt? (PDF).
It argues that 2015 was not like any other defeat. There are no safe places to go to, no easy answers and no comforting new leaders. There is only hard thinking in a process that must confront the party’s economic, political and cultural demons. Whilst outside of Labour, progressive and radical politics is flourishing. Therefore the task for Labour is to ensure that these initiatives become a sum greater than their parts.
What are your thoughts on Labour’s predicament? Do you agree on the analysis set out in Downfall? How does Labour become an open tribe? How can radical hope be rebuilt? How can the Labour Party connect with the emerging social and cultural forces? Let us know your thoughts below.
