New old labour

Labour party is in crisis for not get overall majority on Westminster  if it wins the general elections on next May. Labour leader Ed Miliband still unpopular because he no carismatic or a great idea which reshape UK politics. The fears of another hung parliament scares Tories, Labour and Lib Dem despite the rises of eurosceptic UKIP, Scottish National Party (SNP), welsh nationalists like Plaid Cyrum and Green Party.

The latest from the party is calling the former deputy PM John Prescott. He is essential to avoid wipe out Labour on Northern England overhelmingly UKIP. Miliband appoints him as chief-negotiator on climate change summit in Paris on next December if Labour wins general elections. Prescott has leave the House of Commons in 2010 and he was a great figure of New Labour behind Prime Ministers Tony Blair and Gordon Brown.

In his column on Sunday Mirror, he said: “My brief is to raise ambition on this crucial issue and I am proud to help the man I hope will be the next prime minister so that together we can help the next generation.” Prescott want to go back for politics to save Labour Party from a disaster on May. Miliband still unpopular until now because he don’t recognises the legacy of New Labour.

This words is a bridge among new Labour and Ed Miliband. Speaking on Labour conference in 2011, Miliband said: I’m not Tony Blair. The centre-left is pursuit their origins without go back to the past. Miliband want his kind of New Labour conquers the minds of unhappy britons. It’s a tough duty for him. He gambles on NHS while Conservative PM David Cameron uses economy like his legacy.

As Gordon Brown don’t run for a seat and Tony Blair don’t taken part on politics since his departure from Downing Street in 2007. The new labour gains a final push on the longest political campaing in British history. Miliband needs supports from the centre supportes like moderate politicians or business leaders. The first step was made when he called Prescott to help him. It’s a new old Labour.
