Labour Party responds to Blair’s New Statesman piece

Tony Blair’s New Statesman piece – released this morning – has promopted the following reaction from the Labour Party:

“It is always important to listen to Tony Blair because he has important points to make, including in this article where he emphasises our top priority must be growth and jobs. As he was the first to recognise, politics always has to move on to cope with new challenges and different circumstances. For example, on immigration, Labour is learning lessons about the mistakes in office and crafting an immigration policy that will make Britain’s diversity work for all not just a few. It is by challenging old ways of doing things, showing we have understood what we did right and wrong during our time in office that One Nation Labour will win back people’s trust.”

Or to put it another way – ‘thanks your your input, Tony…but we’re doing it our way…’
