I'm quissentially a Blairite so a question like this is gold dust, shame we didnt have it last year...

Apologies for the late response, hope this helps

OVER-
-Resignation and replacement of David Cameron as PM has meant that Theresa May has pursued her own agendas, especially in the wake of Brexit. Brexit has fundamentally changed universal ideologies.
-Jeremy Corbyn as Labour leader has seen the party take a further shift leftwards. The leader advocates policies such as scrapping trident, nationalisation and a desire to increase public borrowing.
-Although Ed Miliband declared 'New Labour is dead' and was ideologically socialist, he backed railway privatisation and public spending cuts promising to cut spending going into the 2015 General Election.
-The electorate see the New Labour years as initially euphoric and optimistic in tone but lacklustre in substance by the time they left office. The financial crisis of 2008 seriously hampered Labour's credibility on the economy which the electorate still kept in mind as late as 2015 when going to the polls.The vulnerability of the Neo-liberal free market has seen a return to Keynesian economics, not widely used since the late 1970s.

NOT OVER-
-The centre ground has largely been seized by the Conservatives who have used the terms 'Liberal Conservative' and 'One Nation Conservative' to present impressions of understanding inequality and other issues they had ignored previously. David Cameron largely built upon the domestic policies introduced by Tony Blair.
- Blairite and Brownite factions in the Parliamentary Labour Party still largely exist and influence a number of votes undertaken in the House of Commons. Evident by groups such as Progress.
-All parties are committed to achieving the success levels attained in social and domestic spheres by New Labour, especially between 1997-2005. Reforms carried out when they were in govt have largely been left unaltered.
