As Labour Expects A New Hope, What Lies In Wait For it?



Fast forward one year to now, and the mood has not changed a lot. We are here all seated waiting… but there’s a different. A difference that is only understandable when you compare the mood and context that surround the two different times; last year conference and this year. 

In 2009, it was all about a leader we know, a leader that have seen in his different ability, a leader that we know his weakness as well as his strength. Hence when the attack was happening, the party was more focused on defending their home-front than anything else.

In 2010, it is entirely different. It is about a leader we are yet to know in full. It is about a leader to invest hope in. It is about a leader with no established national enemies yet. Ed Miliband is a new leader for a new chapter. 

Considering the above, it is clear why the joys and cheers are completely different in this conference. The cheer now is about a new hope, a new fight, a preparedness to stand up for the poor. That is what it is now.

Will that joy be spread out. Would it be shared? 

This noon, Ed Miliband will set out a structure to achieving all that.
