Tangled Up In Blue Blue Labour and the Struggle for Labour's Soul Synopsis

Tangled Up in Blue charts what happens when an unlikely coalition inside Labour dares to make the case for families, faith, patriotism and community. It's the untold story of Blue Labour and its chief advocate Maurice Glasman - until recently an unknown academic struggling to pay the bills, now a peer and Ed Miliband's guru . Through a series of previously unreported friendships and events, this book shows how both Miliband brothers seized on Blue Labour ideas during the leadership contest, with powerful consequences for the party and potentially the country.
