The party correctly grasped the scale of Britain’s poverty and the climate crisis. Those eager to reject Corbyn should not abandon this ground
The Labour party is reeling from a devastating election defeat in which many of its traditional voters turned their backs on the party. If it is to rebound, Labour must take the time to understand what went wrong. And its analysis must go beyond the defenders of Jeremy Corbyn arguing that it was solely down to Brexit, and his detractors pinning all the blame on the leader and “Corbynism”.
It is also likely that the election result reflects a much longer and deeper trend, in which the party has lost the trust of communities it has long represented yet who have now lost faith in the political system to change their lives for the better.
Without a radical policy platform Labour stands no chance of winning back voters
