Labour no longer knows what it is for or what it should be aiming to achieve, argues Dr
Patrick Diamond who believes a new leader must tackle this head-on. “There is little love for the Tories, even in conservative middle England. But Labour won’t succeed in a changing Britain unless it can completely overhaul its strategy, message and organisation to provide renewed justification for its existence. Addressing the question of purpose head-on ought to be the first task for whoever is elected as the next Labour leader,” he writes.
