A World To Win

SOUNDINGS 45

Soundings 45 is now out

Although the cuts are coming, there has been an eerie political calm and sense of inevitability about all that is in store for us (carefully nurtured by the Coalition and their allies in the media). But the storm will break – people are going to start seriously suffering and we need to ensure that there is a political battle against the assault planned by the government. Can Labour lead this battle?

In May, Soundings and the Open Left project at Demos organised a seminar with Jon Cruddas and David Miliband. The aim was to explore both differences and common ground, and the prospects for cross-party political renewal.

This e-book offers a series of short essays from participants that we hope broadly reflects the debate, and offers some of the groundwork for developing a wider discussion about Labour’s future.
