Labour and the pursuit of democracy
Rob Manwaring pages -


In Britain and Australia, Labour is on the backfoot. Under Ed Miliband’s leadership, British Labour tried to rebuild its policy agenda under the ‘One Nation’ label which simultaneously recognised but distanced itself from New Labour. In Australia, the fall of the Rudd-Gillard Governments (2007-2013) has led to further questioning about the Australian Labor Party’s (ALP) identity crisis. At the state level in Australia, from a high-point in the mid-2000s when the ALP held office in every Australian state and territory, the sole Labor State government is now based in South Australia (1). In both countries, there is an ongoing debate about how Labour can adapt and renew in these post neo-liberal times.
