Thirteen seems to be a special number for British governments. New Labour governed from 1997 to 2010, and the Conservatives have been in power for the 13 years since. In the run-up to Labour’s 2023 party conference, the Fabian Review asked a group of politicians, experts and campaigners to set out what a Labour government could achieve in the same amount of time.
