Adrian Pabst recently argued on this blog that Labour has become disconnected from blue-collar voters, with it’s rhetoric and policy appealing to an increasingly narrow segment of the population. He suggested that the ‘Blue Labour‘ movement offers a way forward to address this issue. Here, Ben Margulies responds with a counter to this argument, suggesting the way forward is not to be found in the Blue Labour idea, which he argues is a conservative and backward-looking agenda.
