Top post up at LabourList. I think we need to concentrate on winning back the whole working class vote and the progressive wing of the middle class (i.e. for the most part, liberals). ‘Get tough’ politics won’t satisfy one, while well-to-do soppy New Labourism won’t satisfy the other.
May I suggest some honest appeals to both, and a programme of redistributive, explicitly class appealing, socially liberal left wingery?
Bonus: it’s morally superior correct and opportune, as well.
