With Dan Swain coming to our meeting tonight to help us prepare for the next campaign, the Guardian and BBC leak of the party’s review is timely. Basically we lost because of
- A failure to shake off the myth that the last Labour government was responsible for crashing the economy.
- An inability to deal with “issues of connection” like immigration and benefits.
- A fear among voters of the SNP propping up a minority Labour government.
- Miliband was judged to be not as strong a leader as David Cameron.
So what can we do about it for 2020?
