Editorial: Defending, restoring, transforming (Renewal 3, Autumn 2020)
Emily Robinson and Florence Sutcliffe-Braithwaite
As we absorb the shocks of the pandemic and prepare for the battles ahead, Labour needs to be creative, clear-sighted, and unafraid of complexity. We must defend liberal democracy against the rising tide of the far right, while also making the case for a transformative political economy that radically redistributes power and wealth. We must be a party of values, while still honouring our founding tradition as a party of labour. And we must focus on the local, while remaining true to our internationalist principles.
