This issue of Renewal debates the relationship between the Labour Party and the New Left with complementary papers from Jonathan Rutherford - who compares the New Left with Blue Labour and suggests the movements' shared interest in the radical and conservative traditions of common life - and Michael Kenny - who debates E. P. Thompson's 'progressive patriotism' and its attempt to tackle those inequalities that were encouraged by conservative accounts of nation. Continuing with discussions of Labour and the New Left, Mark Wickham Jones and Michael Rustin focus on less prominent aspects of the relationship between One Nation Labour and the New Left. Wickham Jones explores the New Left's economic analysis and their advancement of arguments for common ownership, reform of union practices, and an overall reorientation of socialism. Michael Rustin looks back at the May Day Manifesto and suggests what can be learned from it and why a holistic analysis of the state of capitalism might be useful. Also in this issue, Bill Blackwater interviews John Bellamy Foster on the 'stagnation-financialisation trap' for capitalism and social democracy; Helena See argues that reforms of the press will depend on party leaders breaking free of the power relationship between politicians and the press; Jacob Rowbottom suggests that press independence could be jeopardised by private and state power; Anne Wren comments on the rise of the service economy and its creation of new choices over policy; and David S. Moon asks about the relationship between One Nation Labour and Wales.
