Writing in the New Statesman, former Labour prime minister Tony Blair argues that "without total change, Labour will die". 

In this episode of the New Statesman podcast, Stephen Bush, Anoosh Chakelian and Ailbhe Rea discuss why Labour is in crisis under Keir Starmer, and to what extent Blair and other left-wing grandees including Peter Mandelson are right to argue for root-and-branch transformation of the Labour party.

Then, in You Ask Us, they take listener questions on whether the Greens can become the third party in Westminster politics.
