New Labour at the Centre

Andrew Hindmoor

Oxford University Press

This chapter examines how New Labour sought to distinguish itself from Old Labour and the Conservatives by developing its policies as innovative. New Labour constructed its position at the political centre by arguing that its policies were radically different from those of Old Labour and the Conservatives. This spatial position that New Labour sought was one contested by others.

Keywords:   New Labour, policy development, innovation, spatial position, political centre
