LabourList article by Luke Akehurst

Lots of good analysis in this LabourList article by Luke Akehurst  http://labourlist.org/2014/11/the-40-strategy-doesnt-have-to-be-a-fantasy/

"Our position relative to the Tories is now almost static compared to 2010, in fact a net 0.1% gain for them from us." - is Labour really haemorrhaging support to us?

"...voters who moved from Lib Dem to Labour have then moved on again to UKIP or the Greens."

"Labour’s loss of 1 in 20 of its 2010 voters across the UK to the SNP in Scotland..."

"I don’t believe we can expect to substantially erode the Tory vote."

"...repositioning on immigration (Marcus’ idea of fair movement of labour instead of free movement of labour, or can I be the first to resurrect ID Cards?)".

My favourite:  "We often self-describe as the “people’s party” – not the “not very many people’s party”.
