Labour needs to stay Centre-Left but with a credible leader.  Jeremy is not that person.


A 'Tony Blair' (or David Miliband....) using the same manifesto, plan and policies, would of probably won/drawn the election.


The rewriting of the election is quite amazing, the brilliant tory plan was so good that they thought they had lost until 10pm on that Thursday.

Yougov/Times survey asked for reasons for labour losing, top 3 answers -


1 - Ed Miliband was not good enough as party leader

2 - Labour lost touch with its working class roots

3 - Labour did not provide a clear alternative to the austerity policies of the coalition.


In last place -


Labours policies were too left wing.

  The big media companies do not yet own the internet. This does mean that Labour maybe better focussing on social media.


Social media tends to be an echo chamber.  You preach to the converted.
