New Labour – Ten Years On

LSE and Progress public debate

Many children approaching adulthood today will not remember anything other than a Labour government. So ten years on from the dawn of New Labour, what has been achieved and how has Britain changed? Was New Labour just a campaigning vehicle, or did it herald a new philosophical direction for the Labour Party? Is New Labour still relevant today, or does Labour need to find a different way of articulating its purpose?

Anthony Giddens was director of LSE from 1997 to 2003 and is now emeritus professor of LSE and a life peer. Neil Kinnock was leader of the opposition and Labour Party leader from 1983 to 1992 and served as a UK commissioner of the European Commission from 1995 until 2004. Ed Miliband MP is minister for the third sector based in the Cabinet Office. Mandy Telford is a former NUS President and currently Dignity at Work Co-ordinator at Amicus Union. Stephen Twigg has been chair of Progress since 2005, the same year he joined the Foreign Policy Centre as director. He was a Labour MP between 1997 and 2005 serving in various ministerial posts.

Oona King was elected as Member of Parliament for Bethnal Green & Bow in May 1997 serving until 2005. Amongst over things she now chairs Tower Hamlets Advocacy Network & Community Support.

The next event in the 'Life after Blair' series will be on Wednesday 16 May, the speaker is Alan Milburn MP who will speak on A 2020 Vision for the Public Services.
