The future of the left since 1884

Let Us Face The Future Again: Wes Streeting MP

Share

After a disastrous election result, Labour needs a fresh and hopeful vision to rebuild trust with the country.  To win again, the party will have to leave nostalgia behind and develop a programme which addresses the big questions of our day.

How can we end the inequality and poverty which blight our nations? What should we do to ensure everyone has a good life in older age? How do we harness the benefits of new technology to create good work for all? What should we prioritise to tackle the climate emergency? How do we forge new relationships with the EU and the rest of the world?

In this pamphlet, Wes Streeting MP sets out a Labour programme which can win again and, in so doing, improve the lives of millions. In the spirit of the 1945 Labour manifesto, he suggests it is time for Labour to face the future again.
