"Globalisation has not worked for lots of communities"

On World At One (BBC Radio 4) this lunchtime Andy Burnham (Shadow Education Secretary) said:  "It takes time for an opposition to rebuild".  Was this a dampening of expectations for 2015?  Does he expect Labour to lose, at which point he will offer his own services as leader (he is only 44).

Mr Burnham also said "globalisation has not worked for lots of communities".

Which party will be the first to drop an ideological commitment to libertarianism? 

You could argue that the Conservatives have been first with their curbs on non-EU immigration.
