Now is the time for a real debate about the future of the Labour Party and its decisive role in British politics. Labour needs to restore trust, build confidence and reconnect with voters. The way to achieve this is to provide an objective critique of Labour's record in office and consider openly and honestly what the future is for Labour. This book brings together the ideas of prominent figures on the left and right of the Party including MPs, Peers and activists. Contributors of the book consider a renewed approach on areas of policy and discuss the ideological direction of the Party post New Labour. WHAT NEXT FOR LABOUR tackles the need of a post New Labour narrative and considers a renewed approach on the economy, education, the NHS, crime and justice, defence and the green agenda.
