Labour’s Plan for Government

The Labour Party has published its plan for government based on decision taken at this year’s conference, setting out key commitments in four areas: economy, society, politics and Britain in the world.

LP Changing Britain TogCalled Changing Britain Together, the 56-page document is designed to clearly spell out what a Labour government will do on a series of issues, each one containing key facts, Labour’s plan and a set of bullet point intentions, while 10 headline commitments – such as, ‘raise the minimum wage to £8 an hour’ and ‘scrap the bedroom tax’ – are listed at the beginning.

The party is asking for feedback on the document via the ‘Your Britain’ website to help it prepare its final election manifesto for next May.

In his leader’s message at the beginning Ed Miliband writes: “This isn’t our manifesto, because there is more to come and we want your ideas. But in setting out our priorities for Britain it should give you an idea of just how deep our commitment to change runs.

“It explains how together we can build our economy on the success of the many, a society based on our shared values and a politics that gives power away instead of guarding it.”

    It is good to see that the Labour Party has now caught up with the approach I pushed here on this website.

    They have published their own popular and usable version of bullet points and arguments taken from the document ‘National Policy Forum Report 2014’, which was adopted at its recent conference. It will shape their general election manifesto and needs to be accessed and used by Labour’s rank and file. Hopefully it will find its way into the hands of Constituency Labour Parties, their branches and affiliated bodies; with encouragements for them to push its messages to the electorate.

    They come up with 114 bullet points (which would make a rather large pledge card). I came up with 180, whilst more than 300 can be found. They have not, of course, done this because I have been peddling it. It is either a matter of great minds think alike or fools seldom differ.
