Warning Labour is facing the wilderness

Jon Cruddas warning Labour is facing the wilderness:  https://www.politicshome.com/party-politics/articles/story/labour-facing-wilderness-working-class-voters-switch-ukip-says-jon

Interesting that he identifies UKIP, not the Conservatives, as the enemy.

"Mr Cruddas spoke out as he published the latest findings from his review into why Labour lost the general election. It showed that the party's support among its "socially conservative" working class voters had collapsed in the past decade as they switched to Ukip. He blamed Labour's failure to address their concerns on immigration, welfare, national security and the economy. At the same time, the polling showed Labour had seen its support increase among more liberally-minded voters."
