The future of the left since 1884

Path to power: The Fabian leadership essays

For more than 130 years, the Fabian Society has been at the heart of the debate on the future of  the left. Now, as Labour seeks to recover after its devastating rejection in December’s general election, searching questions are being asked about how best the party can reconnect with the voters it has lost. How should it tackle the pressing social issues that scar our communities? How can it bring a divided country back together? How can it challenge the Conservative government and go on to win the next election?

As Labour members and supporters cast their votes for the person they most trust to meet the challenges ahead, we asked all three leadership contenders to set out their priorities for leading the party back to power. Here, Rebecca Long-Bailey, Lisa Nandy and Keir Starmer make their offer to the party and the country.
