It is not enough for Labour to criticise the government on devolution: we must offer bold plans for decentralisation, and a transfer of power to local communities.
It’s great to learn from the politics of other nations, but only when you concentrate on those parties making a difference to the lives of those they represent.
Of course the last Labour government did not cause the global financial crisis. But we did make errors, and until we admit that, the electorate will not listen to us
We need an approach in which no one is too rich or too poor to be part of our party – and politics that starts with what unites rather then divide us as a country.
