The notion that the 1980s was a terrible decade for the Labour Party – and the British Left more broadly – is well established. It is seen as a decade of defeat and destruction – ideologically, politically and electorally. This talk reconsiders Labour’s fortunes and considers whether a longer historical view allows us to see a more positive history emerging.
