Today Labour leader Ed Miliband will make a key speech to Labour's National Policy Forum amid murmurings that he has allowed the party to drift since he took up the leadership two months ago.
Speaking on the programme Peter Hain, shadow Welsh Secretary Peter Hain, who chairs the National Policy Forum, said that changes needed by the party were "at least of the magnitude" of those made by Tony Blair when he became leader in 1994.
"Labour is now in a position," he said, "with the Liberal Democrats having abandoned the progressive territory in British politics, to refound ourselves, to get back to the values of social justice and greater equality, freedom and democracy that have inspired our movement and successive Labour Party majorities over the generations."
Mr Hain also admitted that "the public had lost faith in the New Labour project," adding that "people didn't think we were anymore speaking for middle 'Britain'".
And he added that Labour needed "to be a different type of political party" in order to better engage with younger people, who he believed were "entering politics in a different way" and that it needs to have clearer policies on areas like welfare and immigration.
