Sorry, I forgot to mention the real killer warning from Charles Clarke:

“A resounding defeat of the type many predict if we fail to change our approach would lead to a real collapse of our party, which would have few resources and all the potential for bitter internecine conflict following defeat. It is by no means clear that we could succeed in pulling ourselves around as we did with such difficulty through the 1980s and early 1990s.”
