PoliticsHome: "Labour Will Swing Left"

"Peter Hain is the latest figure to offer some unsolicited advice to Gordon Brown, helpfully telling the Prime Minister that 'Labour has not had a clear enough narrative across the government'.

The gravitational pull on Labour is now to the Left. That's the assessment of a big majority of our experts and insiders on the PHI100.

A third of the panel reckon this will become manifest after the next election. An even bigger group (sixty one per cent) believe the leftward pull has already started. Very few of the panel don't see any move left.

Leaders of think tanks are most heavily of the opinion that this change is already underway.

More of the politicians and the media panellists, though still a minority of them, believe that Labour won't move left until after the election."
