Popular policies don’t make a popular Labour Party

"It is true that opinion polls regularly show significant support for Labour policies. But to believe that it will always be popular for a party to advocate for an apparently popular policy is wrong."

Ben Glover writes for the Times Red Box 👇

A fallacy is haunting the Labour Party: the popular policy fallacy. Yes, we lost the election, the argument goes, but boy were our policies popular! So don’t blame the policies, blame something –

Demos - People, Politics, Power

Demos is Britain’s leading cross-party think-tank. We produce original research, publish innovative thinkers and host thought-provoking events. We have spent over 20 years at the centre of the policy debate, with an overarching mission to bring politics closer to people.

Demos has always been interested in power: how it works, and how to distribute it more equally throughout society. We believe in trusting people with decisions about their own lives and solving problems from the bottom-up.

We pride ourselves on working together with the people who are the focus of our research. Alongside quantitative research, Demos pioneers new forms of deliberative work, from citizens’ juries and ethnography to ground breaking social media analysis.

RE;THE OPTIMISM PROJECT;A TROUBLED AND ANGRY NATION;indeed we are ,largely thanks to the social egineering/brainwashing attempts of corporate fascist globalists of the ilk who work for you,but ah! its just "nostalgia" to want to live in a sovereign nation with a sensible immigration policy.As Orwell observed "he who controls the past controls the future";you will fail,you coven of tesco/wanker bankers/faiied marxists,your global crapitalist paradigm is disintegrating;you won't socially egineer your way out of that!
This Spring, Demos is launching our first ever series of masterclasses for campaigners, policy makers, political professionals and interested citizens. For five days, we’re sharing the insights and expertise of our amazing range of staff and Trustees. It’s a rare opportunity to learn from former government advisers like speechwriter to Tony Blair and Times columnist, Philip Collins, and former policy chief to the Deputy Prime Minister, Polly Mackenzie. You can learn about handling the press, influencing the government and opposition, and how to prepare for being fact-checked. Book your place here: https://www.demos.co.uk/spring-masterclasses/
