Summarised by Centrist
In Chris Trotter’s analysis, he contemplates the path Labour must take to regain political ground. He notes the need for a significant ideological shift within the party, away from neoliberalism, and toward a more radical program reminiscent of the US Democratic Party Left’s “Green New Deal” or the British Labour Party’s “For the Many, Not the Few” manifesto.
Trotter suggests that Labour should embrace the debate on Te Tiriti o Waitangi (Treaty of Waitangi) principles and co-governance, as the Right strategically targets this issue. He envisions a united and progressive Labour Party backed by its allies on the Left, trade unions, and youth, as the force that can challenge the right-wing coalition effectively.
