I wrote this post 6 months ago and I believe it’s even more pertinent now, when Labour has a lead in the polls, an opportunity to extend and solidify it by winning the battle of ideas, and boldness is more imperative than ever in putting forward ideas and a worldview that are genuinely, fundamentally different from the trite, shallow nonsense that’s peddled as ‘just the way things are’.
Ed and Ed, what we need from you is boldness, not caution; ideas, not acquiescence; an appeal to the hearts and minds of the people, not to the wallets of marketeers. I believe you can do it.
Fortune favours the brave, and voters will favour the bold. We’re dying – often literally – for a better vision, and only Labour has a chance of showing it to people.
