MP Jon Cruddas said the party was in despair with power fading fast.
"A sense of loss pervades the party. Not just of power sliding away, but a more profound loss, one relating to our essential mission, our very identity. We have lost our language, our empathy our generosity because we have retreated into a philosophical framework of the right. It is only by returning to our traditions and radicalism that we can confront this dangerous force. We can still win."
