Labour should, in 2016

Posted on

Owen Jones has written this in the Guardian this morning:

If Labour has a New Year’s resolution, it should be to concentrate above all else on an economic alternative that resonates.

He's right.

I'm not saying there is nothing else that Labour can do in the new year that can matter, but this does matter most of all.

I am working on the issue, although not just for Labour, of course. The new book is under way although I do not know the publisher (but at least two are interested).

I will be ensconced in the corner of coffee shops quite a bit over the coming weeks, bashing away. And the aim is to do it quickly, because that is essential. There is no longer any time to waste.
