Abstract

Labour’s future direction is at stake. Its leader has the backing of a large part of the membership yet appears to have no prospect of forming a government in order to deliver upon his vision. Although the trigger was the (tokenistic) addition of Jeremy Corbyn on the ballot paper in 2015, the crisis is caused by more than Corbyn. Artemis Photiadou and Sean Kippin explain why current events are instead about Labour’s fundamental, and repeating conundrum: electability or ideology.
