This week saw Ed Miliband state that Labour was “party for all times, not only a party for good times”. Bart Cammaerts argues that this and other attempts by Labour to reframe itself still opposes the coalition on its own terms, rather than shifting the debate to a genuinely alternative view. By pointing out the flaws in the neo-liberal ideology that led us to the current crisis, Labour can start to outline a new vision for a ‘Fairer Britain’.
