Progressive Populism – “The Unfinished Revolution: How New Labour Changed British Politics Forever” – Philip Gould

January 5th, 2012 · No Comments · Campaigning, Electoralism, Politics, Progressive Politics, UK Labour, United Kingdom

Populism, which means Labour becoming once again the instrument through which ordinary people believe they can achieve their aspirations. We have to make it clear to working people that we understand their aspirations and that we want to make them better off; that we are against taxation for its own sake; that we are tough on crime; that we stress individual responsibility. A new Labour Party: we must at some appropriate point say to the public – and to the party – that we are a new Labour Party. Radical in intent, driven by change, underpinned by conviction, confident in our beliefs and ready to sweep the Conservatives away.
