Labour Future’s purpose is to steer the Labour party towards two key aims: reconnecting with the working class base, and reshaping the British economy towards a more manufacturing based, high wage, high job security, and resilient economy. Only by addressing these core issues can Labour win the support of the country.

Secondly, we must reshape the British economy towards a more manufacturing based, high wage, high job security, and resilient economy. We need a competitive exchange rate, and an environment that encourages long term investment over short term profiteering and asset sales.

Only by addressing these core issues can Labour win the support of the country.
