Labour's Revival The Modernisers' Manifesto
Labour's Revival offers the Labour Party a path back to power following a general election when its coalition of support will likely have been fractured and their traditional voters will have deserted them in their tens of thousands. The author analyses Labour s strategic errors and the debilitating bumps in the road the 10p tax rate row, the disastrous battles over 42-day detention, the plots against Gordon Brown s leadership, poor local and European election results and perceived policy U-turns. Paul Richards outlines the task ahead for Labour. By calling on Labour to adopt a new agenda on public service reform, local ownership and control, a green economy and a renewed democracy, Labour's Revival offers a practical path for modernisers to follow in the tough months ahead. As Labour searches its soul, and debates its future, Labour's Revival provides a wake-up call for anyone who wants to see Labour come back as a serious party of government.
