After my conversations this week with their MPs and Momentum, I'm finally starting to feel optimistic about Labour's future
Labour has lost touch with many voters in the party’s traditional Northern, Midlands and Welsh heartlands. That’s one of the few things on which people from almost every faction of the party can basically agree. Current polling, in the Midlands particularly, makes it hard to deny. Unless something changes dramatically, Labour is en route to a general election wipeout. It’s hard to overemphasise the potential scale of the disaster, and the urgent need to do something to tackle the problem.
