Was shown a very interesting paper today by John Kampfner, former editor of the New Statesman and top journalist. Called Lost Labour, it details how most of what he hoped for from New Labour has not happened.
It is an interesting read and poses as many challenges to my party as encouragements. John voted Lib Dem for the first time in 2005 over the Iraq war. Now he supports us because he sees us as the true inheritor of the progressive politics championed by Robin Cook in the Labour Party.
