The document below draws on common ground between centre left parties, specifically the Green Party, Labour, Liberal Democrats and Mebyon Kernow. It does not pretend to be complete and comprehensive, covering every area of policy. Nor does it seek to claim that there are no serious policy differences or distinct party identities – that is all too evident. Rather it seeks to demonstrate that there is sufficient common ground to form the basis of dialogue and co-operation on certain key issues. We therefore urge members from centre left parties as well as the wider public who embrace progressive values, to take seriously the imperative of working together at both the local and national level to get the Tories out of power and to implement a progressive agenda for a better, fairer society.
While the vision includes proposals such as Proportional Representation and a Robin Hood tax that are not part of Labour party policy, the document is to be taken as a whole. It is a work-in-progress which will include amendments and changes over time. Please feel free to make comments and suggestions below
