Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
It is a reasonable aspiration and should make some electoral impact - which is the main purpose of a manifesto. Of course Labour may find that "the coffers are empty" if/when they reach office and have to trim their plans accordingly.

It is a political necessity for Labour to offer an alternative to Tory austerity and if they can convince the electorate of its feasibility, it could be a vote winner. Game changer, I'm not too sure.

And BTW, there is no reason why this agenda couldn't be delivered from within the EU, and every reason to suppose their might be more resources to fund it if the UK were to Remain.
