Dr Patrick Diamond, The risk for Labour is permanent irrelevance
19 July 2015
Labour no longer knows what it is for or what it should be aiming to achieve, argues Dr
Patrick Diamond who believes a new leader must tackle this head-on. “There is little love for the Tories, even in conservative middle England. But Labour won’t succeed in a changing Britain unless it can completely overhaul its strategy, message and organisation to provide renewed justification for its existence. Addressing the question of purpose head-on ought to be the first task for whoever is elected as the next Labour leader,” he writes.
