Labour needs to get more radical to resolve the ‘disconnect’

How can Labour leverage the “anti-establishment” mood and build bridges with the disenchanted electorate?

In today’s Observer, Andrew Rawnsley warns that Ed Miliband is “better at describing why so many people hate conventional politics than he is at providing an answer.”

Rawnsley believes Labour will have to get a lot more “radical” if it wants to get beyond the Westminster Bubble, and reconnect with the grassroots.

We believe the National Conversation could be part of the answer.  Will Labour agree?

  1. How come the French presidential elections have huge turnouts of around 80 percent, a good 15 percent above our general election? Politics in Britain is too narrow and most people don’t fall easily into Labour or Tory camps. The National Conversation should help the disillusioned and the non-aligned to get involved in politics again.
