Editorial: The end of illusions (Renewal 1, Spring 2020)
George Morris, Emily Robinson, Florence Sutcliffe-Braithwaite, James Stafford

Yet it also allowed all of us ‚Äì including this journal ‚Äì to sidestep hard and necessary reflection about the work needed to build a social democratic majority in twenty-first century Britain. After last year‚Äôs electoral rout, the future is uncertain. We must face it without¬†illusions.
