Electoral Reform: Labour’s Litmus Test

Clive Lewis

Is Labour about to shift its culture from imposing to negotiating the future? Proportional representation isn’t a silver bullet, but here Clive Lewis, the Labour MP for Norwich South and front bench spokesperson for Sustainable Economics, gives a speech to the AGM of the Labour Campaign for Electoral Reform on why Labour needs to back PR and why now. Something is shifting in Labour, and not just the usual pro PR election loss blip, but a more fundamental recognition that the future we want will be plural. The speech is a call to arms for PR and forms the basis of the campaign Compass will be working on to get Labour to shift its position at its September Conference.
