LABOUR’S LOCAL OFFER: IDEAS FOR A RADICAL LOCAL MANIFESTO
If you needed proof that Labour is the party of localism, look no further than this book. The nine chapters that follow show the depth and breadth of the Labour movement’s passion for taking power from Westminster and Whitehall and putting it back into communities where it belongs.
The New Local Government Network and the Fabian Society have shown the strength of Labour’s local offer and the energy and passion it has inspired across the Labour movement. But they also confront the reality that there is no national blueprint for this. Each chapter takes its own view of localism and how Labour can best deliver it. Reading each one through, the thing that stands out is the willingness to be honest about what successive governments (Labour and Conservative) got right and wrong. Like me, you may not back every idea in this book but clear themes emerge that give Labour the foundations on which to renew our public services.
