Future Shock: Governing as One Nation Labour

By Matthew Sowemimo


Future Shock, authored by Matthew Sowemimo examines the powerful forces of political opposition that a Labour or Labour led government could face after the next General Election as it grapples with slow growth, the legacy of austerity and tensions over the European Union. The paper warns that Ed Miliband in Downing Street could be overwhelmed by political opposition from both the Left and the Right and go down to a heavy election defeat in 2020 unless it puts in place a strategy now to prepare for power. It goes on to argue that Labour has to foster a powerful social movement to drive through its economic reforms and that Ed Miliband has to win a clear electoral mandate for redistributing wealth to people on low and middle incomes.
