Very interesting piece from Labour Home...

 
_Should the Labour Party take a leaf out of the Greens' book?_

Under her (Lucas) leadership, the Greens have positioned themselves as 
a party not only concerned with environmental affairs, but who also 
have coherent policies facing Britain today.

Banking nationalisation, nuclear de-armament, a 'green new deal' - 
these could all very well have been Labour proposals, yet somewhere we 
have lost our way.

By no means are the Greens in any position to challenge Labour yet, 
but we should observe their recent resurgence with a mixture of awe 
and envy. They are connecting with disenfranchised young voters, 
particularly students and young professionals, which have all but 
abandoned Labour outside of the Northern heartlands.
