Here's the new pledge card. I quite like the aspirational nature - nobody could disagree with the intentions, surely? It personalises what Labour is planning to do, stressing the positive effects of the past eight years of government and promising more of the same. In some ways, it is tougher than the original from 1997, as that specified key indicators of performance, like class size. These are more intangible ideas and we should expect to be able to test the policies in the manifesto and in the years ahead against these aims. (Yes, there are some specifics on the other side as well).
